DeKalb County District 4 Commissioner Steve Bradshaw has appropriated $1.4 million to assist 23 nonprofit, community-based agencies in helping DeKalb residents with food insecurities, rental assistance and other essential needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aid came from District 4 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding.

“Nonprofit agencies play a vital role in society in partnering with government to improve the common good of society,” Commissioner Bradshaw said. “I am confident that the 23 agencies receiving District 4 CARES Act funds will continue the very important work they already doing day in and day out assisting the most vulnerable among us.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has destabilized the security of many citizens and local nonprofit agencies.

“There are those among us who are hurting,” Bradshaw said. “Anything that we can to help mitigate the challenges faced by our fellow citizens is altogether fitting and appropriate.”
