Philadelphia Home Buy Now (www.uac.org/philadelphiahomebuynow) is an employee-assisted housing program, which provides matching grants to partnering companies’ employees, up to $4,000 for the purchase of a home. Purchasers may be eligible for a $4,000 grant if the property is within the geographic boundaries of York Street to Girard Avenue and N. 6th Street to N. 19th Street. Properties outside of these boundaries, but within Temple’s Employee Home Ownership program zip codes may be eligible for $2,000 grants.
Other services of the Philadelphia Home Buy Now program include discounts for housing related services for Philadelphia Home Buy Now participants and housing related workshops.
