A recent Georgia Health News article outlines how possible changes to the state’s grant-in-aid formula could result in deep budget cuts for some Georgia counties.
The article reports:
“Several Georgia counties could lose at least 40 percent of their state grant-in-aid money for public health under a new formula being rolled out this year.
Chatham County, home of Savannah, could lose under one estimate more than $1 million, or 50 percent of its previous allotment. Other counties potentially losing a big chunk of these state funds include Ware and Glynn in southeast Georgia, Bibb (home of Macon) and Dougherty (Albany).”
