Changes to Grant Formula Could Mean Cuts for Some Counties

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).”
