Cops on the Hill
A spring 2010 Knight Neighborhood Challenge project, Cops on the Hill will pay up to $500 towards a rental deposit or down payment for Macon Police Department officers who are moving to or within the College Hill Corridor, as defined by this map. A greater concentration of local police officers that are living in the corridor will result in a greater perception of safety.
Cops on the Hill stipends will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis until the funds are exhausted. Applications will be considered in order based on the date the submitted and complete application is received by the Community Foundation of Central Georgia. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The up to $500 stipend per property will be paid directly to the landlord as credit towards your first month's rent. If your rent is less than $500, the stipend will be the amount of your monthly rent payment. If you're purchasing a home in the Corridor, the stipend will be applied towards your closing costs and will be made payable to your closing attorney. Checks will not be made payable to the applicant.
