About Us

Atlanta’s working families are finding it increasingly difficult to meet basic needs, such as food and housing, from their salaries alone. The Atlanta Prosperity Campaign (APC) was created as an initiative of the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help these hard-working families not only meet those basic needs but also take steps towards financial security.

Through its collaborative efforts with businesses, financial institutions, social service providers and governmental agencies, the APC promotes long-term solutions. It links workers with economic benefits available to them, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and federal nutrition programs, and even helps them save for the future.

Services of the Atlanta Prosperity Campaign include:

  • Benefits screening services to determine eligibility in economic support programs such as Food Stamps, Medicaid, PeachCare, energy assistance, and more. Screenings are conducted at selected VITA sites during the tax season and at several nonprofit agencies throughout the year. The program is also able to travel to business locations to screen employees on-site.
  • Introduction to other asset-building services including down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers, credit counseling, rent/utility assistance, banking services, job skills/career training and financial literacy programs.
