York Revolution joins push to help employees buy homes in city


The York Revolution is the latest to join in the City Homeownership Employee Incentive Program aimed at enticing its employees to buy homes and live in the city.

The program will offer, among other things, up to $10,000 in grants to help first-time homebuyers who work for the team.

Revolution President Eric Menzer, who moved to the city 27 years ago, said a majority of the ballclub's employees are younger than 30 and are renting. This program is meant to keep them working for the Revolution, as well as living in and benefiting the city.

York College of Pennsylvania and WellSpan Health also offer similar assistance programs to their employees, said Mayor Kim Bracey.
