The city of Salisbury and Salisbury University announced yesterday the Buy a Home, Build a business program.

The program provides up to $5-thousand for a down payment and closing cost to help university students start businesses in the city.

University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach said that one of her top priorities was to create a strong partnership with the  city.

Meanwhile, Mayor Jake Day said he wanted to get Salisbury University students to remain in the city.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that around 2-thousand graduate from the university each year but most leave the area in search of other jobs.
