Bibb awards grants to Macon Violence Prevention partners

The grants were provided to 25 nonprofit organizations in the community.

MACON, Ga. — Macon-Bibb granted nearly $1 million to nonprofits in the county.

The Community Foundation of Central Georgia announced the recipients of its first Macon Violence Prevention program.

MVP is an initiative, officially established in 2021, that provides grants for nonprofit and faith-based organizations.

Those organizations would use the money to expand community programs.

Brittney Perry is the founder of "SALT is Life...," a program that aid teens with mental health solutions.

She says she is looking forward to using the money to reach out to more youth.

"I'm always a person that's always going to be boots on the ground and actually do something," Brittney says.

"Because you can hear about everything that's going on, but a lot of times the funding is what stops us from being able to implement the things we want to implement in the community."

Perry said the nonprofit started in December.
