Does the institution have incentives or programs to encourage employees to live close to campus?:

A brief description of the incentives or programs:

Cal Poly Pomona is committed to recruiting high quality faculty and staff and is aware of the challenges encountered in relocating and finding affordable housing. Cal Poly Pomona and the CSU System are currently researching housing assistance strategies and exploring options to assist faculty/staff in searching for a new home. Unlike traditional home ownership, a faculty/staff member buying a home in the faculty/staff housing program will purchase the home but lease the land from the Foundation, greatly reducing costs and enabling university professionals to own a new home near Cal Poly.
Another mechanism in place to make local housing affordable and enticing to employees is the Silent Second program, where the buyer can get a low interest loan to help with the down-payment. More information is available at http://www.foundation.csupomona.edu/ha/documents/news/Homebuyer%20Assistance%20Program-revised.pdf
