An Eastern Kentucky city has been selected for a pilot program
The city of Ashland has been selected for a pilot program that may help some low-income disabled residents purchase an automobile. The program is sponsored by the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The program hopes to help disabled individuals save 2,000 with the aid of monthly financial education classes. After the money is saved, the state will then match the saved money and give a 4,000 check to make a down payment, full payment or to pay insurance on a car. Participants will also be instructed on vehicle maintenance.
