The Decatur & Macon County communities are committed to helping families and businesses. The AccessDecatur portal centralizes new grants and programs available to our community, in addition to existing benefit programs, providing a streamlined experience for all. Here you will find federal, state, and local resources, such as COVID-19 relief, food resources, healthcare, business assistance, and more, all through AccessDecatur.

If you choose to create an account and fill out your profile details, AccessDecatur will show you the resources and programs you are eligible for, saving you time and effort. The available programs and benefits will likely change over time, and an AccessDecatur FORWARD profile will ensure that you stay updated on resources available to you.
