Escambia County will host an affordable housing homebuyer's workshop Saturday, April 2 at 9 a.m. at the Brownsville Community Center, located at 3200 W Desoto St. This workshop is free and open to the public.
During the workshop, community partners will share more information about Escambia County's new infill housing project, an initiative aimed at providing access for low-income households to secure housing that is decent, safe and affordable. Citizens interested in learning more about the homebuying process will have the chance to speak one-on-one with representatives from each agency as they provide valuable information in becoming a successful homeowner.
