The DeKalb County Human Services Department’s 2019 Grant Program will support 58 local nonprofits and provide approximately $851,000 in funding.

“The Human Services Department is pleased to invest in local nonprofits that serve DeKalb County residents,” said Human Services Director Damon Scott. “During this grant cycle, DeKalb was able to extend the reach of the Human Services Department and support agencies that deliver extremely important and critical services countywide.”

The Human Services Grant Program is designed to provide supplemental funding to community nonprofit organizations. Service areas that will be addressed in this grant cycle include youth and family development, crisis intervention and prevention, homelessness and supporting individuals with disabilities.

The grant program uses a competitive evaluation process to identify grantees. Grant awards range from $10,000 to $25,000 and at least half of the awarded amount must be used for programming.

Funding was approved by the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners. Resources for these grants originate from two areas: $617,808 from the County’s General Fund and $233,402 from a Victims Assistance Fund.
