Murray, Ashland picked for car purchasing program

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - The cities of Murray and Ashland have been selected for a pilot program that may help some low-income disabled residents purchase a car.

The Murray Ledger & Times reports that the program sponsored by the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet is accepting 10 applicants from Murray and Ashland to help test the system and fix glitches before a potential statewide release.

The program aims to help disabled individuals save $2,000 with monthly financial education classes. Once the money is saved, the state will match the saved money and give back a $4,000 check to make a down payment, full payment or to pay insurance on a car.

Participants also will take a course on proper vehicle maintenance and save at least $20 a month toward the car fund.
