Senior funding approved in Henry County

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously at its June 16 regular meeting to approve two resolutions related to funding for services provided to senior citizens.

A contract with the Georgia Department of Human Services provides $267,428 for services to low-income seniors with no local match required. An annual contract with the Atlanta Regional Commission is expected to result in $630,902 and federal and state fund with a $50,261 local match. Services provided under this contract include case management, senior recreation, personal care, homemaker, respite, home-delivered meals and congregate meals served in the county’s senior centers.
