About the Program: The Not-For-Profit Grant program has been established to assist not-for-profits of up to 100 employees with various personnel and operational expenses. The program will be funded by way of a portion of the County’s disbursement of funding via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. These funds are intended to be used by communities to deal with the impacts of COVID-19. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners has allocated $2 million to be disbursed by SelectCobb to Cobb-based not-for-profits impacted by the pandemic.
