Joint Allocation Committee

The Mental Health Joint Allocation Committee (JAC)

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 at the same time and location which is currently to be determined and the committee invites you to come! 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, don’t hesitate to reach out to!
