CANTON — St. Lawrence County will have a public hearing at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Room 255 of the county courthouse, 48 Court St., for residents to learn about the 20th round of its first-time home buyer program.

Staff from the county Planning Office will provide an overview of a $621,000 Community Development Block Grant that could assist 27 income-eligible home buyers.

The program helps low- to moderate-income people who are having difficulty saving enough to buy their first home.

As a prerequisite for assistance, participants must meet a lender’s underwriting criteria and complete a class on household budgeting, mortgages and the challenges of home ownership.

Those unable to attend the hearing can contact the Planning Office, 379-2292 or planning@stlawco.org, for written information.
