Incentives

If time and money are critical to your quality of life, then Live Midtown is for you. The average one-way commute in Southeast Michigan is 25.6 minutes. When you add it all up, that’s more than 2 weeks on the road annually-the national average for vacation time! That alone is enough for you to at least think about living near your place of work. If you’re still on the fence, how about some big help with your pocket book?

Here are the perks if you work at DMC, HFHS or WSU:

  • New homeowners relocating to the district with a one to one matching forgivable loan up to $20,000 toward the purchase of their primary residence
  • New renters with a $2,500 allowance toward the cost of their apartment in the first year followed by an additional allowance of $1,000 for the second year
  • Existing renters within the district will be eligible for an allowance of $1,000 over one year when an existing lease is renewed or when relocating within the district
  • Existing homeowners in the district with a matching allowance of up to $5,000 for exterior improvements for projects of $10,000 or more
