Fulton County Commissioners voted today to continue a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta (JFGA) for East Point’s Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORC) Initiative. The MOU provides for $23,852 in support from the Federation for project management oversight and the provision of services from Fulton for the East Point NORC. The Federation’s funds are derived from the Georgia NORC initiative.
Fulton County’s required funding match involves an in-kind donation of services provided by existing Housing and Human Services Department staff and the fair rental value of space utilized by the NORC program at the H.J.C. Bowden Senior Multipurpose Facility. The program provides transportation, nutrition education, vision screenings, health and wellness education and exercise programs to 1,092 senior residents in the City of East Point, enabling them to continue to age within their homes.
Services also include $17,500 in voucher booklets of which $1,500 includes participant fees managed/processed by Jewish Family and Career Services. The grant period continues from September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014.
