Anne Peterson, of Olin Business School, tapped into the Live Near Your Work employee housing assistance program to rehab an abandoned home in St. Louis’ West End neighborhood. The result was so impressive the Landmarks Association of St. Louis gave Peterson an award for historic rehabilitation. This year, the popular program’s budget expands to $300,000.
Live Near Your Work, Washington University in St. Louis’ employee housing assistance program, is increasing its annual budget, the number of neighborhoods where employees may buy a home and, in some cases, the size of forgivable loans. Employees may learn more about their options at housing summits set for May 3 and 8.
