ATLANTA — Gov. Brian Kemp is providing more cash relief to vulnerable Georgians, his team announced in August.
Kemp said that he has dedicated more than $1 billion to the Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide cash aid of up to $350 one-time payments for active enrollees in certain social benefit programs, per the statement.

He says that the assistance will help some of Georgia’s most vulnerable citizens cope with the continued negative economic impact of COVID-19 and high inflation rates.
This pledge from Kemp comes less than a week after he proposed new $250-$500 refund checks and $500 property tax breaks, although the exact eligibility of this proposal is still undetermined.
Funds for this revenue award are coming from the State Fiscal Recovery Fund which was part of the American Rescue Plan act, his team announced.
For more assistance, eligible Georgians should contact the DHS.
