Albany-- The City of Albany wants to make sure non-profit organizations know where to go to get the money they need.

A new service will give charities information about grant opportunities. The city will provide a "grant alert" that will show available federal and state money. They'll also list grants available from certain foundations.

City leaders say there's a lot of competition for grants and the alerts will help local nonprofits increase their resources.

"We're doing this work anyway, looking for grants for the city and as we run across grants that others may be able to take advantage of, we want to be able to give them that information," says Grants Coordinator Thelma Watson.

The alerts are free and will be sent twice a week by email. To sign up, send an email to Twatson@albany.ga.us.
