Please review the following parameters and restrictions that must be followed when using UMB’s Live Near Your Work (LNYW) Program:

  • One LNYW grant per household/address.
  • The LNYW grant is considered a taxable benefit. For more details, see our FAQs or contact the LNYW coordinator. 
  • An application to the LNYW Program does not guarantee that a grant will be awarded.
  • Grants are available for homes purchased within the target areas identified by the UMB LNYW initiative.
  • Final approval and disbursement of funds is contingent upon the timely receipt of the documents required by the city of Baltimore and UMB.
  • If the employee is applying for additional incentives, the employee must abide by the requirements of those entities.
  • False statements or materials omissions made by an employee on, or in connection with, an application for a LNYW Program grant can result in denial of the grant, repayment of any grant funds received by the employee, and disciplinary action up to and including termination.
