A WORD FROM YOUR CHAMBER

PEOPLE BUSINESS COMMUNITY

At the Issue Conversation, we heard from two employers
who are offering financial assistance to employees.
Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine (LGH) provides
a program to its employees called Home in the City, which
offers employees a forgivable loan of up to $10,000 to assist
with the purchase of a home in one of the neighborhoods
surrounding the Hospital, among other cost-saving benefits.
Participants must maintain full-time status for the duration
of the five-year loan. Not only does this program help LGH
attract and retain employees, but it also solves another
problem for the Hospital - in cases of inclement weather
or emergencies, the 164 employees who have utilized the
program live close to the Hospital and can still get to
work safely.
Two Dudes Painting Co. recently launched a program called
City Life, which offers employees who wish to purchase a
home within the Lancaster City limits a $5,000 forgivable

five-year loan, while hopefully boosting employee retention
efforts. It also offers opportunities for employees to qualify
for additional loans for down payments and closing costs
through partnerships with Lancaster Housing Opportunity
Partnership and Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency.
These programs can change the lives of employees at these
companies, helping them provide for themselves and their
families, while making our County an even more desirable
place to live and work. LT
