Second Round of Workforce for Georgia Grants Launched

The Georgia Power Foundation, in partnership with The Georgia Foundation for Public Education, has launched the second round of the Workforce for Georgia Grant Program. The first round of grants were awarded in 2020, with 13 grants awarded totaling nearly $280,000. 3,200 students were reached through the program, with more than 90% being economically disadvantaged.

The grant program provides school districts, that offer Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) through traditional high school programs or through College and Career Academies (CCA), with support to invest in implementing or scaling programs to better serve students and instructors in the continuation of programs and/or program alignment of educational and training pathways to meet workforce needs of local and regional communities’ industries and businesses. 

This initiative is in partnership with the Georgia Foundation for Public Education with a total expected investment of $1,000,000 for 2022. Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Public schools, school systems, or College & Career Academes in Georgia; private schools are not eligible. 
  • Only one submission per school district is allowable; more than one submission will disqualify all applications from the district.
  • The Georgia Power Foundation, Inc. does not support organizations whose policies or actions discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability. 
  • The Georgia Power Foundation, Inc. does not support projects designed to mitigate legal or regulatory compliance obligations or tied to ongoing legal or regulatory action

The application deadline is August 15, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Once awarded, grant recipients have until August 31, 2023 to use their funds. Applications can be found here, with additional information on the program available here:
