Local nonprofits that serve Gwinnett County residents will have an opportunity to apply for federal coronavirus recovery grants later this summer.

Gwinnett County and the United Way of Greater Atlanta will accept applications from Aug. 1 until Aug. 26 for grants to support programs that address issues such as housing stability, food security, mental health, early education/literacy, childcare and transportation. In all $4.25 million in grant funding, using federal moneys that were allocated in the American Rescue Plan will be distributed to help the community recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
