DOWNTOWN ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's expanded Civil Rights Institute finally will to the public Tuesday, The same day the nation's first black president will take his oath of office.

It comes months after the institute held its grand opening, then immediately shut down.

On Thursday workers were sprucing up, trimming hedges, and putting the final touches on the Parking lot.

Finding the money for daily operations will still be a challenge.

"We will be open Tuesday January 20th to the public, the parking lot has been completed in its first phase, and we are working on an operational budget, to submit to different entities for different operating resources," said Charlie Crapps, Civil Rights Institute Vice-Chair.

The institute's board will meet next Thursday to work on submitting proposals to the city and other entities for funding.
