What is Project SHARE?
SHARE provides emergency bill-payment assistance to individuals and families facing a temporary crisis that threatens their home. SHARE attempts to target the most urgent need, whether it is a utility bill, a part of a rent payment or an emergency prescription.
To apply for aid, make an appointment at the SHARE Partner Agency in your county of residence. Each eligibility decision is based on the change in circumstances that caused the crisis, as determined by a local case manager. The level of assistance is based on need, available funds and what it will take to resolve the crisis.
How Do I Contact Project Share?
All applications for assistance are done locally by appointment. To book an appointment with your local case manager, please phone the Partner Agency office in your county.
For questions about appointments, what to bring to your appointment, available funds or the status of your case, you must contact your local Partner Agency. The Georgia Headquearters office cannot respond to this type of query due to client confidentiality.
