ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Even though bankruptcies, foreclosures, and layoffs are increasing the state wants to help you start a business or buy a home.

Albany Technical College is hosting the Business and Housing Expo Friday. It is an opportunity for south Georgians to learn more about state and federal economic development tools that could help them buy a home or go into business for themselves. 

"The focus of the conference is bringing together business individuals homeowners, potential homeowners as we understand to look at what's available to help in the housing area for Georgia's citizens," said Albany Technical College Economic Development V.P. Matt Trice.

Governor Sonny Perdue will speak to the crowd Friday at 2:30. The free event runs from 9:00 to 5:00 at Albany Tech.
