Financial help for homeowners

November 19, 2006

Moultrie - - If your home is in need of a make-over and you can't afford to do it on your own, you may want to attend a public hearing tomorrow.

Albany's Department of Community & Economic Development is outlining its needs in a grant that the city receives from the federal government.

The grant helps provide safe and affordable housing to people in Albany.

City commissioners say the public needs to take advantage of it.

"There are certain bonuses and certain perks that if he or she is a senior citizen or you're low income, they can get certain perks done to their house, they can get rehabilitation or weatherization that will enhance or improve their residence," says Commissioner Jon Howard.

The public meeting will take place Monday at the East Albany Community Center, that's the District 4 Police Center on East Oglethorpe Blvd.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
