The DeKalb County Human Services Department has begun its 2018-2019 Human Services grant cycle, the county announced today.
Designed to supplement existing programs and activities, the grant programs provide “opportunities for partnerships with local organizations that can successfully address identified needs of DeKalb County residents,” the county press release said.
Eligible nonprofit organizations can now apply for the grants funded by the county general fund and Victim Assistance fund. The Human Services Grant Program is competitive, and the total number of awards allotted each year is based on the availability of funds, according to the release.
Examples of appropriate service areas for the grant program include prevention and intervention of violence against women, youth development, family unity and sustainability, support for individuals with disabilities and senior adults, homeless intervention/prevention and more.
A meeting for organizations seeking more information on the grants or application process will take place on June 20 at 10 a.m. at the Central DeKalb Senior Center, 1346 McConnell Drive, Decatur, GA 30033.
