Albany selected to participate in GICH

Posted: Updated:

Albany is one of five Georgia communities selected to be part of the Georgia Initiative for Community Housing.     

The 3 year program will provide instruction and technical assistance to help Albany address housing needs.     

The goal is to improve the quality of life and economic conditions.

"I think it's a great opportunity for the City of Albany, because it's helping us not only learn from other communities, but it's also a way to bring the local organizations together," said Laura McCool, Department of Community & Economic Development.       

Representatives from the five communities will attend their first workshop retreat in February.
