Shown is Minner, who believes the new initiative will help more Delawareans achieve the dreamofhome ownershipwhile simultaneously supporting major goals of Livable Delaware. Gov. Minner launches new home ownership program Gov. Ruth Ann Minner joined officials from Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA), Fan- nie Mae, the Town of Georgetown and Perdue Farms Inc.., June 5, to officially proclaim the month of June as Home Ownership Month in Delaware, and to launch a new DSHA home ownership program. "DSHA has continued to find new and creative ways to keep the costs of purchasing a home within the reach of most Delawareans/' said Minner. '`TOday, I am delight- ed to announce the official kick- off for the Live Near Your Work program, a promising new initia- tive to help more Delawareans achieve the dream of home owner- ship, while suppoi'ting major goals of Livable Delaware." The Live Near Your Work pro- gram is an employer-driven part- nership among DSHA, Delaware Economic Development Office, Delaware State Chamber of Com- merce, Delaware businesses and local jurisdictions, to provide fi- nancial assistance for employees to purchase homes near their place of work. The program encourages home ownership in areastargeted for revitalization; promotes pub- lic/private partnerships -to strengthen communities; and sup- ports state transportation policy by promoting shorter commuting times and reducing commuting costs. The program also supports employer compliance with the federal Clean Air.Act amendments of 1990. "We are thrilled to offer this in- novative program that supports economic development and hous- ing here in the First State," said DSHA Director Sandy Johnson. "The program will expedite our work in housing restoration in our communities. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our partners in this novel approach to home ownership." Using information and statistics from Fannie Mae's own Employer Assisted Housing (EAH) initia- tive, Fannie Mae provided techni- cal assistance to DSHA. Fannie Mae helps employers design a customized benefit that assists their employees with home own- ership and offers employers an im- portant tool to attract and retain employees. "We're proud to be part of Delaware's Live Near Your Work program," said Susan Frank, di- rector of Fannie Mac's Delaware Partnership Office. "Across the country, Fannie Mac has provided technical assistance to over 500 public and private employers to help them evaluate their needs and design an Employer Assisted Housing program to meet their particular objectives." The Georgetown Town Council, which is providing a financial in- centive to .participants, approved the Live Near Your Work Prograni in mid-May. '`This is a great thing starting right here in George- town," said Mayor Ed Lester. '`The program offers viable solu- tions to housing challenges in this area." The Georgetown Perdue Com- plex, with 1,200 employees at its Savannah Road location, came on hoard May 21. "We at Perdue Farms are excited about participat- ing in the Live Near Your Work Program," said Keith Moore, complex manager. "Working to- gether, we can make the local community stronger and offer our associates this new and exciting housing opportunity." The Home Ownership Month proclamation signing is one of many similar events held nation- wide. It promotes home owner- ship education and recognizes new initiatives and local partnerships.
