By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) -- Gov. Nathan Deal says more than $3.4 million in funding will be split among more than a dozen Georgia AmeriCorps organizations working to meet local education, health, environmental needs and more.
Deal says the money is meant to help 690 AmeriCorps members in 15 organizations "to better meet local needs, leaving a positive and lasting impact on the state." Deal says the Corporation for National and Community Service is providing the funding.
Officials say Teach For America-Atlanta, United Way of Metro Atlanta, Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta, and the Jekyll Island State Park Authority are among recipients of the grant support.
