Today the City of Peachtree Corners has launched a Nonprofit Emergency Relief Grant Program that will use ARPA funding that the City received as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 which was signed into law on March 11, 2021, by President Biden (H.R. 1319), the city received funding in two disbursements. This program will be used to distribute funding to qualified nonprofit service providers who assist residents of Peachtree Corners with such items as early childhood learning services, literacy, childcare, mental health counseling, housing assistance, utility assistance, and food insecurity.
“We have worked to ensure the application process is as simple and seamless as possible and will benefit those residents that need our help the most,” said Cory Salley, the city’s Finance Director. “With funding from the federal government, there are restrictions on how the funds may be allocated and specific requirements that must be followed to receive funding. The details are included in the applications which are accessible through the city’s website.”
In addition to the application available through the website, and to assist applicants, the City will host a webinar on February 1 at 2 PM EST. For any questions, please use the email provided on the website page.
This program differs from the city’s small business and nonprofit operating grant program 2021 as qualified nonprofits will be required to use the funding to provide direct services to residents. Funding will not be available to nonprofits seeking to replace or bolster operational funding.
“We are very pleased that the city can present this grant program to our nonprofit service providers. It will be the mechanism we use to distribute these monies into the hands of nonprofits who support those who need it the most,” said Peachtree Corners’ Mayor Mike Mason. “The council and I believe we must notify our nonprofit service providers of this grant program as soon as possible to distribute the funds as quickly and efficiently as we can,” added Mayor Mason.
