Mayor Andre Dickens announced the $8.2 million in grants from the Resurgence Grant Fund, which is funded by the American Rescue Plan.
The announcement continues a yearlong pattern of Georgians benefitting from a Democratic accomplishment their Republican representatives opposed unanimously – with Brian Kemp calling the American Rescue Plan a “slap in the face to hardworking Georgians” and urging Georgia’s U.S. Senators to block it, then taking credit as the funding came through to help Georgians.
