Johns Hopkins’s Live Near Your Work program is the university’s attempt to encourage its employees to live in nearby neighborhoods. Their major incentive? Money.

Johns Hopkins REALLY Wants You to Live Near Your Work



Johns Hopkins’ Live Near Your Work program is one of the neatest, simplest ways we’ve seen to encourage local workers to buy homes in the city rather than fleeing to the suburbs. Qualifying employees who buy homes in certain neighborhoods near either the Homewood or East Baltimore campuses can qualify for thousands of dollars of grants to assist with the down payment and/or closing costs. And as a sign of their commitment to the program (and to the neighborhoods surrounding their campuses), the university just announced that they’re providing even more money to qualifying homebuyers.
