Denver Metro Association Grows Employer-Assisted Housing Idea from Grant to Class to Program

Then, they took it to the next step by establishing the Greater Brighton Employer-Assisted Housing program. Today, the program serves this tightknit community northeast of Denver by showing employers who might not have ready cash to offer down-payment assistance that benefits like a day-off for moving, or the loan of a truck, are creative low- or no-cost ways to give their employees a housing benefit. Besides funding the course itself, the EAH grant from NAR paid for course materials, promotional flyers, tri-fold brochures to distribute to employers, and the website.
