Live Newark: Model Neighborhoods Initiative Incentive Program

Model Neighborhood Initiative Incentive Program

The “Live Newark” Program has been launched to encourage municipal employees and public school teachers to purchase homes — in Newark. The program will provide home purchasers with forgivable loans to cover closing costs and rehabilitation expenses for homes purchased in one of the City’s two struggling Model Neighborhood Initiative areas.
