For more than 10 years, MPC has promoted Employer-Assisted Housing (EAH), a proven strategy that helps people afford homes near work and transit while enhancing the competitiveness of businesses across the region. Earlier this year, we were excited to announce the availability of up to $7,500 in downpayment assistance for employees taking part in EAH. Today, MPC is proud to present our EAH Guidebook, which makes it easier than ever for employers to offer EAH to their employees.
This guide is a compendium of MPC's experiences 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.
Take a look at the guidebook. I'm sure it will inspire an interest in EAH, and I encourage you to get in touch with me if you have any questions.
