A brief description of the incentives or programs:

The Yale University Homebuyer Program was created in 1994 by President Richard C. Levin to encourage employees to invest and live in New Haven. It is reviewed every two years and has had great success in the fourteen years since it began, helping over 900 Yale University employees purchase their homes. Yale University’s program is the largest and most generous such employer-assisted homeownership program offered by any institution of higher education in the nation.

The program provides $25,000 over 10 years to faculty and staff that purchase homes in specified neighborhoods of New Haven.
