American Rescue Plan Act
Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (H.R. 1319), which was signed into law on March 11, 2021 by President Biden, the city was allocated $16,395,722 to be received over two years (the first half was received in July 2021). The funds will be given away to qualified small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals who suffered economic hardships as a result of COVID-19.
The intention is to help organizations remain open and operating and keep Peachtree Corners' residents employed. To do this, the city has created four distinct funds and grant application pathways:
- The Nonprofit Emergency Relief Fund: is to assist Peachtree Corners residents who have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Our funds will be awarded to qualifying nonprofits that will distribute them to individuals
- The Nonprofit Operating Fund: is to assist qualified nonprofits that have been especially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with funding for operating costs
- The Business Assistance Fund: is to assist small businesses within the Peachtree Corners city limits that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19
- The Capital Project Fund: is to assist businesses and nonprofit organizations in modifying their facilities to address COVID-19 prevention measures such as upgrading ventilation systems, enabling social distancing, etc. or improving the exterior areas of their business
For more details on qualifying for the grant consult our Summaries for Application Processes (PDF). All businesses will need a Peachtree Corners Business License.
Application deadline is Friday, October 29.
