ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The City of Albany is looking to help worthy local charities.

The city is accepting applications now for tens of thousands of dollars in grants to groups that help low to moderate income families.

This year, they've seen an increase in applicants.

"This year we've seen double if not more. It's an initiative that we have taken we want the public to be aware that the funds are out there, so we've been pushing to get the word out there," said Daa'iyah Salaam, Interim Community Services Manager.

Organizations that plan to apply for grants must send a representative to a workshop tomorrow morning at nine o'clock in the Microbusiness Enterprise Center conference room on South Jackson Street.
