The Mental Health Joint Allocation Committee
The Mental Health Joint Allocation Committee (JAC) manages the dispersal of the $1M fund allocated from the Student Government Association (SGA) and Georgia Tech administration in October of 2017. Any individual student, the office of Georgia Tech, or student clubs can apply for JAC funds! The purpose of JAC is to fund initiatives that improve the mental health and well-being of Georgia Tech students. If you have a proposal or just an idea for the use of this fund (or if you’re just curious), JAC has public meetings every week. The meeting time for the Spring 2021 semester will be scheduled soon. JAC can certainly help you through the steps of submitting a bill and would love more student input and more proposals! If you have other questions or would like to join our email list please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Mental Health JAC Grants
The Mental Health Joint Allocations Committee Grant Frameworks: JAC has developed three grant frameworks that we feel will specifically and significantly address the gaps in initiatives and programs that we have identified at Georgia Tech thus far. Although proposals to JAC are not limited to the following grants, proposals specific to these grants will be given priority for funding.
Stay posted for information sessions for the Fall 2020 semester! The workshops will include general information about how to submit a bill to JAC and answered questions regarding bill submission and ideas.
