On Tuesday, March 31st, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) held an online webinar discussing the Public Assistance program through FEMA. The program provides funding for numerous projects such as buying Personal Protective Equipment, feeding citizens/students through food bank programs, and building emergency structures. Local governments are eligible for the program as well as schools and certain non-profit agencies.
Interested organizations can make an account in the Public Assistance grant portal by emailing PA-RPA@gema.ga.gov or by visiting https://gema.georgia.gov/assistance/infrastructure-and-local-government-assistance. After creating an account, fill out a request for public assistance (instructions outlined in the webinar slides [click here to view]).
