CARES Act Assistance

The City of South Fulton is excited to provide assistance to residents negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiatives include rental and mortgage assistance, small business relief and education/recreation opportunities.

The city is funding these efforts with more than $4.14 million in CARES Act funding received from the federal government through the Fulton County Commission. We are thankful to all on both of those levels who helped secure this funding to serve South Fulton residents.

You can learn more about each initiative - including eligibility requirements and how to apply for or secure assistance - in the corresponding tabs below. You also can read the city's decision memo highlighting the city's CARES Act Funding Plan.

  2. Small Business Assistance

Response to the South Fulton CARES rent and mortgage assistance program has been overwhelming, with nearly 700 people applying for funds. Here’s what will happen next.

The application period has closed and, we are working to process applications as quickly as we can. We appreciate your patience.

We have identified a non-profit partner who will help us manage this process. Reviewing each application will take some time, so we ask for your continued patience as we work to serve you.

All approved applicants will receive a notice of award and a one-time subsidy of $1,200. Payment will be made directly to the landlord or mortgage company listed on the application. Those deemed not eligible for assistance will receive a letter as well, explaining the reasons for that decision.
