The GDCA would like the grant information to be shared with all possible interested people and organizations.

The purpose of the FYM ESHPF sub-grant program is to assist Georgia historic property owners with recovery from Hurricane Michael by addressing historic property needs unmet through other funding sources (FEMA, GEMA, Insurance, etc.).
