WCA Wins State Grant for Repair Work

Capping four years of diligent and very hard work by a band of dedicated members, the Woman’s Club of Albany has received a $148,500 state grant to help pay for long-awaited exterior repairs to our home.

The grant was awarded through the state’s Regional Economic Development Councils.

This is the third grant the WCA has received in recent months to help realize our goal of repairing the main entrance & front porch, stabilizing the side entrance, resolving water infiltration & installing a ramp to make the building handicap accessible. As we celebrate 100 years of home ownership, it is gratifying to know we can fulfill our mission as stewards of this beautiful house.
