$9.1 million in federal money is on the way to Georgia for community development and to give a boost to efforts to build affordable housing.

More than $3-million is earmarked for the Columbus-Muskogee area ; almost $2.5 million will go to the Athens-Clarke Co region, and Albany is getting $1.8 million dollars for development. Other communities getting money include Brunswick, Dalton, Valdosta and Warner Robins.

The money comes from a program through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Communities receiving money are determined by factors like population, poverty, and the extent of overcrowded housing.
