What can the Achieve Atlanta Emergency Grant Cover?
The current emergency grant fund will cover unexpected financial emergencies that potentially impact a student’s ability to stay enrolled in school or emergency expenses incurred due to COVID-19 response and loss of employment. Travel back home, child care, transportation, immediate medical, and housing costs may be eligible for grant assistance.
Am I Eligible?
You are eligible if you are an Achieve Atlanta Scholar and are receiving scholarship funds in the spring 2020 term or you have a Beyond 12 coach. If you have already received an Achieve Atlanta emergency grant for spring 2020 you are not eligible to apply for an additional grant. If you have been denied an emergency grant this year, you are eligible to apply as soon as a new emergency expense arises.
