Moultrie-- Does your neighborhood need more housing for low income families? The Southwest Georgia Housing Task Force says there's a big need for housing projects in south Georgia.

Tuesday, the task force taught 70 business leaders and citizens how to improve housing problems in their county.

"One of our primary goals is education. Trying to educate city county government leaders, business, faith-base communities, educate them on the resources that are available so they can use them,
said Task Force Director Barbara Reddick.

Experts say the biggest problem in rural Georgia, single family homes are not being built because builders don't make much of a profit.

If you would like to find out more call the Southwest Georgia Regional Development Center in Camilla.
