ATLANTA, GA — The Cobb County Board of Commissioners has authorized $1,500,000.00 in American Rescue Plan funding to allow nonprofits to expand their food assistance efforts for the residents of the county.
The current public health and economic crisis have devastated the health and economy of millions of Americans. As the citizens of Cobb County begin to recover economically, their need for assistance remains unchanged. The county hopes that providing additional food will help ease their financial and emotional tolls.
The news was announced on the 29th of June 2021, and the county expects a proposal from a wide range of non-profit organizations until Monday, July 12, 2021, at 5 p.m.
