ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Even though money is tight, the City of Albany has federal grant money available for non-profit groups.

The Department of Community and Economic Development will hand out public service grants of up to $25,000 apiece.

The money must be used by community groups to help low to moderate income families.

"We provide free money to the groups and provide some type of financial assistance for them to carry out their mission, it's win-win because not only do they get funding to carry out their mission but it also allows the City of Albany to meet its objectives that we've placed in the consolidated plan," said Phyllis Brown, Community & Economic Development.

Applications will be available starting Monday online and at the Department of Community and Economic Development office at 230 S. Jackson Street or call (229) 483-7650.

They'll also hold a workshop next Thursday to help group's find out if they qualify.
