2021-2022 Human Services Grant Virtual Public Information Meeting
The DeKalb County Human Services Department announces the beginning of its 2021-2022 Human Services Grant Cycle. The purpose of the Human Services Grant Program is to provide opportunities for community partnership with local organizations that can successfully address identified service needs for the citizens of DeKalb County, Georgia.

Eligible non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to be awarded a grant utilizing County General Fund and Victim Assistance funds. Agencies that receive Victim Assistance grant funds, must meet the County’s eligibility criteria and must also be certified to provide victim assistance programming through the State of Georgia Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.

The Human Services Grant Program is competitive, and the total amount of awards allotted each year is based on the availability of funds. This grant program is designed to supplement existing programs and activities for DeKalb County residents.

Examples of appropriate service areas for the Human Service Grant Program include, but are not limited to, youth development/early childhood programs, senior services, services for individuals with disabilities & special needs, domestic violence & family intervention, substance abuse treatment & prevention, mental & behavioral health, health & wellness, nutrition & hunger prevention, legal counseling & advocacy, family economics & money management, refugee services, homelessness and family transition.

A Virtual Public Information Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. will provide the specifics regarding the Human Services Grant application process.
