Albany -- You could get some help fixing up your home.

Albany's Community and Economic Development Department talked to homeowners about loan and grant programs Monday night.

Low and moderate income homeowners may qualify for money for emergency repairs, Weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades. 

"When everyone brings their home up to standards, or we're able to help the largest number of people, the whole neighborhood starts to look better.  People feel better about where they live.  More residents will move in, and more businesses will come in.  And it will eventually make a greater impact on the community as a whole," said Jennifer Clark, Community and Economic Development Director.

The department also gives facade grants to business owners who want to improve the look of their storefront.

You can get applications for all of the programs at the Community and Economic Development Department Office on South Jackson Street.
