CANTON St. Lawrence County has set a public session for 7 p.m. Thursday in two locations about its application for a first-time homebuyer program.
The hearings will take place in Room 225 of the County Courthouse and in the supervisors chambers of the Essex County Government Center in Elizabethtown.
Staff members in the county Planning Office and the Housing Assistance Program of Essex County will give an overview of the countys intent to apply for an $850,000 grant that would assist income-eligible residents in purchasing their first home. The program would be implemented across the north country, including Franklin, Lewis, Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties.
The county anticipates the program, if funded, would assist 28 households across the region that meet eligibility requirements.
