Albany--  Albany groups are taking advantage of a new program to encourage them to hold events downtown.  The city will actually pay you to do that. 

In an effort to promote downtown, the Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority is offering grants of up to $1,000 to help put on events in the heart of the city.    

So far, those grants have helped with several events.

"What we've found is that the promotions are going phenomenally well and so we understand that this is a very successful program and one that we plan to continue until these rounds of grants are done and then we'll revisit that idea again next year," said Buie.

The Cinco De Mayo event was put on with the help of a grant.  A group of Albany State students were also just awarded a grant to hold an outdoor movie event downtown soon. 

There are still a couple of grants available.  To learn more, visit www.ilovealbanyga.com
