Where to Get Help in Athens

I want to start this off by saying this is by no means a complete list and I haven’t been able to personally vet each of these. Send more my way if you can. This is just me gathering together the stuff I’ve seen and I hope it is of use to you. Your mileage may vary. Stay safe, stay home. If you can help, please see this post for places to donate.

Nuci’s Space – Relief fund application

Disaster Relief for Small Businesses

Georgia Dept. Of Labor Unemployment

And from our Mayor Kelly Girtz:
Local/state CARES Act resources for BUSINESS OWNERS or partly or fully unemployed INDIVIDUALS. If you are a business that employs under 500 people, much of your rent, payroll costs, utilities and mortgage interest for the next two months can be covered. Individuals in Georgia can earn up to $300 a week without impacting unemployment at all, benefits are for up to 26 weeks and will earn $600 per week MORE than under “normal” unemployment for four months
