Peachtree City seeks to renew grants for two nonprofits

Two Fayette County nonprofits are slated to receive renewed grant funding as part of Peachtree City’s upcoming fiscal year budget.

The City Council voted 4-0-1 on May 16 to continue an annual grant of $10,000 to Promise Place, which provided assistance to more than 2,000 victims of domestic violence in 2018. The group offers shelter, counseling, legal assistance and support groups, and also runs awareness and education programs about teen dating violence in addition to offering a 24-hour emergency hotline. The council also voted to extend a $15,000 grant to Fayette Senior Services, which provides such social services as meals, personal care and non-emergency transportation for older adults and runs the Life Enrichment Center in Fayetteville.

Both funding items will be part of the city’s proposed FY2020 budget, which will be ratified in June.
