Baltimore County and LifeBridge Health have announced a Live Near Your Work program for LifeBridge employees who buy homes near Northwest Hospital in Randallstown.
The incentives range from $1,000 to $5,000 to help employees with down payments and closing costs.
“By providing buyer incentives in communities near Northwest Hospital, we are encouraging LifeBridge employees to invest in the neighborhoods near their workplace,” Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said in a news release.
Brian White, president of Northwest Hospital and senior vice president of LifeBridge Health, said the hospital truly embraces the community.
“We believe this new partnership with Baltimore County will strengthen that connection by increasing the number of employees living in our nearby neighborhoods, with the added benefit for employees of a shortened commute to work,” he said in a news release.
The highest incentives are available to homebuyers in the Stevenswood, Courtleigh, Green Lane, Fieldstone, Lochearn, Gwynn Oak and Colonial Village communities, which have seen declines in homeownership since the recession, the release said.
To be eligible, homebuyers must work for LifeBridge Health, purchase a home in the designated area, contribute at least $1,000 toward the purchase and use the property as their principal residence.
