MPC's EAH Guidebook is a compendium of our experience in promoting EAH in Chicago and around the nation since 2001. It answers frequently asked questions from employers about why they might offer EAH and how to best use the financial incentives available. It also offers a case study of the University of Chicago's success with EAH.
