Live Near Your Work brings homeownership counseling to Johns Hopkins

To make the grant application process a little easier and less expensive, Live Near Your Work has scheduled the Neighborhood Housing Services counseling agency to come to Johns Hopkins for a full-day workshop at no cost to the homebuyer. That's a $100 savings for each homebuyer!

NHS counselors will lead the one-day workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 3, at Johns Hopkins at Eastern. After attending the one-day workshop, homebuyers will:

  • Gather necessary financial documents
  • Provide the documents to Neighborhood Housing Services
  • Attend a one-on-one appointment with a housing counselor on Friday, June 10, at Johns Hopkins at Eastern
  • Receive their homeownership counseling certificate, which is required when applying for a LNYW grant

If homebuyers are unable to attend the one-day workshop on June 3 or a one-on-one appointment with a housing counselor on Friday, June 10, there are other options to receive a homeownership counseling certificate. The $100 savings is available only to employees who attend the one-day workshop on campus.

LNYW grant amounts are set to change starting July 1. However, a soon-to-be-announced opportunity for Johns Hopkins employees will increase the home-buying grants to an amount unlikely to be seen again. Attending the homeownership counseling on campus will help prepare homebuyers for this exciting opportunity.
