Living Near Your Workplace Now Makes Even More Financial Sense

Down payment and settlement costs are one of the biggest barriers to homeownership, especially for first-time home buyers. Live Near Your Work provides assistance so that fully-benefitted Johns Hopkins University faculty and staff and Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System employees can purchase homes in specific Baltimore City neighborhoods near Johns Hopkins campuses.

In 2008, The Rouse Company Foundation's sponsorship of grants in the A, B, and C target areas contributed significantly to a thriving Live Near Your Work program. Starting in July 2014, The Rouse Company Foundation is helping support the expansion of Target Area A1 near the Homewood Campus. The larger area brings more options for buyers and still provides a high grant amount of $23,000 for all of A1.

Thanks to increased funding from Baltimore City, the LNYW base grant has increased from $3,000 to $5,000.

Learn about the specific neighborhoods and their corresponding grant amounts.
