Homeownership Program

Live Near Your Work (LNYW)—an innovative matching grant program for homeownership and community building. The BioPark Corporation will provide the “employers” match of $2,500 toward a $5,000 employee benefit to cover closing costs or a down payment for your staff who buy a home in the neighborhoods surrounding the BioPark.

How do employers participate in Baltimore City’s LNYW program?
Complete the application and submit it the Baltimore Department of Housing. Contact Linda Cassard at 410-706-5036 to let her know you are applying.

Where is the eligible area?
To be eligible, an employee’s home purchase must be in communities within a one-mile radius of the UM BioPark west of Martin Luther King Boulevard. This includes:

  • Barre Circle
  • Franklin Square
  • Poppleton
  • Hollins Market
  • Harlem Park
  • Mount Clare
  • Union Square
  • Washington Village/Pigtown
  • Parts of Sandtown-Winchester, Upton and Madison Park

What this benefit can do for your company?
We hope the Live Near Your Work benefit will support the recruitment, retention and productivity of your employees. For current employees who commute long distances to work, offering the LNYW benefit may encourage them to live closer to the UM BioPark reducing their transportation costs, travel time and traffic-induced stress.
