Helping Atlanta


Thank you for your interest in the City of Atlanta Contract Worker Assistance Grant Program through Georgia’s Own Foundation. We regret to inform you that the designated funds for this initiative have been exhausted. Demand among qualifying employees was high given the continuing effects of the pandemic, and grants were awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

As a result, we regret that we are no longer accepting applications, but we invite you to visit atlstrong.org to learn about other relief efforts available throughout the community.

Thank you for your service to our city, and we hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this time.
