December 4, 2003 Albany- Congress is putting the final touches on huge bill to fund federal agencies next year, and many South Georgians benefit.
The bill will send 115-thousand dollars to the Albany Faith Community Outreach Center. It houses up to 20 homeless women and children and helps them find permanent homes and jobs. But the center could use computers to help children with homework and the renovated house needs more improvements.
"It's still not up to the code that it needs to be," said Janice Thompson, director of the center. "And these funds will help us bring it up to standards of what it should be."
The Outreach Center has been serving south Georgia women and children for six years.
Following is the list of South Georgia groups expected to get federal money:
ALBANY : $200,000 for Darton College ’s Rural Technology Network. $115,000 for the Albany Faith Community Outreach Center. $75,000 for construction at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital . $100,000 for building renovation at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital .
MOULTRIE : $525,000 for the Moultrie Swift Property. $25,000 for the City of Moultrie , technology upgrades in support of distance learning undertaken by Moultrie Technical College . $250,000 for the Moultrie Police Department to purchase law enforcement equipment.
THOMASVILLE : $75,000 to renovate the Douglas High School Alumni Complex in Thomasville .
VALDOSTA : $50,000 for Valdosta Technical College for “Roadmap to Success” support at-risk youth.
TIFTON: $50,000 for Tifton-Tift County Public Library.
