Services: Grants

Emergency Food & Shelter Program
Henry County may be awarded Federal funds under the Emergency Food & Shelter National Board Program. In April 2010, Henry was chosen to receive $69,020 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the County.  The selection was made by a National Board chaired by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from The Salvation Army, American Red Cross, United Jewish Communities, Catholic Charities, USA, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA and United Way of America . The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.

Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local organizations chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary nonprofit or units of government, 2) have an accounting system, 3) practice nondiscrimination, 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply.

Public notice will be made through this website, newspaper, and social media when the grants applications are available.  If you wish to be notified of the availability of this grant, please email Susan Crumbley at connectinghenry2@co.henry.ga.us or you may notify her in writing at Connecting Henry, Inc.  333 Phillips Drive, Ste D., McDonough, GA  30253.  All requests of this nature must be written.


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Health Leaders program
Each year this program honors 10 outstanding and otherwise unrecognized individuals who overcome daunting odds to expand access to health care and social services to underserved populations in communities across the United States. The program aims to elevate the work of these unsung heroes through enhanced recognition, technical assistance and leadership development opportunities. RWJF Community Health Leaders are identified through a nomination process. Nominees are expected to: be accomplished in the field of community health at the mid-career level; have created or substantially enhanced a health or health care initiative in their community; have positively affected a significant number of people in the target community; have received limited national recognition in the past; be affiliated with a public entity or tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; and be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its territories at the time of application. Ten awards in the amount of $125,000 each will be made for the 2008 award cycle. Each new leader receives $20,000 directly to recognize past accomplishments; $105,000 goes to benefit the organization with which the leader is associated. October 19, 2007 (5 p.m. ET) is the deadline for receipt of brief nominations. Nominators will be notified on November 16, 2007 if the candidate is selected to move to full nomination. January 11, 2008 (5 p.m. ET) is the deadline for receipt of full nominations.
