ALBANY, GA (WALB) - President Obama wants to use some of that recovery money to help people weatherize their homes.
He says it will save them money, conserve energy, and put people to work.
Albany's Department of Community and Economic Development already has a Weatherization Assistance Program.
It helps low-income families reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient.
On average weatherization reduces energy bills by $218 dollars per year.
"The City of Albany has actually had the program since 1989 but now I think in this day and time more people are looking to reduce costs and this is one of those ways available to low-income families," said Latoya Cutts, DCED Director.
