Health TRUST Rockdale, the grant-making division of the Hospital Authority of Rockdale County (HARC), will accept applications Aug. 1-4 for its final grant cycle of 2017.  Nonprofit or government agencies working to improve the physical and mental health of Rockdale residents are encouraged to apply.

HARC ended its last grant cycle in May, awarding $154,854 to 11 agencies: B.O.L.D. Ministries; Horse & Harp; Longleaf Hospice Foundation; Prevent Child Abuse Rockdale; Project ReNeWal; Rockdale Cares; Rockdale County Accountability Courts, Rockdale Emergency Relief; Rockdale Houses for Men & Women; Servants of the Lord Meals on Wheels; and ViewPoint Health.

“The Authority is honored to support the wonderful work of these grant recipients,” said HARC Chairman Allan Jones. “They provide much needed physical and mental health services to uninsured and underinsured residents of our community. They meet needs that would otherwise go unmet and by doing that, they are changing and even saving lives.”

Jones said he is excited about the upcoming grant cycle, noting HARC has invested more than $2.5 million in charitable healthcare projects and programs since launching its grant program in May 2010.

Participation in a pre-proposal conference/orientation session is mandatory for all new applicants. Previous grantees also should register for a pre-proposal conference, if seeking funds for a program or project not previously funded. Those seeking repeat funding and new applicants should notify Executive Director Julie Mills of their intent before July 28 by calling 770-922-1441 or emailing For the grant program guidelines and deadlines, visit
