Live Near Your Work (LNYW) is a home ownership assistance program encouraging employees to live close to their jobs, which will be made available in the spring of 2012 to full-time employees of Gallaudet University and the Clerc Center. University officers, members of the President’s Cabinet and employees listed on the University’s IRS Form 990 are disqualified from participating.
LNYW is a performance-contingent grant program created by the DC Office of Planning that will match contributions by Gallaudet University. The grants will go towards down-payments and closing costs for homes purchased by awarded employees. Gallaudet and the DC Office of Planning have agreed to jointly fund the program to provide grants for ten employees. Each grant will amount to $12,000 per participating employee.
The grants will be performance-contingent--awarded employees will begin to reduce payback obligations by living in their purchased homes for more than three years; all payback obligations will be fully waived after five years. The grant can only be applied towards the down payment and closing costs for the purchase of homes that will serve as primary residences and are within 1.5 miles of Gallaudet. The program will be limited to ten qualified applicants who will be identified on a first come basis.
