A Macon agency is one of dozens across the country that are getting home repair grants for low-income residents.
The Middle Georgia Community Action Agency will get $29,501 to repair and rehabilitate the homes of low income or elderly residents.
Groups in 49 states and Puerto Rico are splitting the $4.4 million in grants.
Grants may be used to make general repairs, such as installing or improving plumbing or providing or enhancing access to people with disabilities. Funds may also be used to weatherize and make homes more energy efficient.
