Because of current economic hardships and extreme need, many people have previously stood in long lines for hours hoping to get financial assistance without success.

They will begin taking applications from eligible Atlanta and Fulton County residents by appointment only starting Tuesday, February 1, 2011 until March 15, 2011 or until the funds run out.
