All nonprofit organizations with a 501c3 designation and serving Cobb County residents must attend a meeting 1-3 p.m., Feb. 27, or 9-11 a.m., March 1, for a presentation on the availability of funds from the Cobb County Nonprofit Grant for fiscal years 2019 and 2020. An overview of the funding process, including criteria for receiving a grant and instructions on completing the application, will be given at this time. The application will align with the priorities approved by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners at its Dec. 12, meeting which include: homelessness, family stability/poverty, employment/workforce development and health and wellness. Attendance at one of the two meetings is mandatory. Applications will be available in electronic format on the Cobb Collaborative website, www.cobbcollaborative.org, after the last scheduled RFP session.
The Feb. 27 presentation will be held at the South Cobb Community Center, 620 Lions Club Drive Mableton, and the presentation on March 1 will be held at the The Zone, 32 Fairground St NE, Marietta. Staff from the Cobb Collaborative and Cobb County Finance Department will be on hand to answer questions regarding the application and review process.
