Home Purchase Assistance Program
The Assistance Program was established to encourage and support home ownership within defined borders of the Drexel University main campus community (Drexel). The program offers a forgivable loan to benefit eligible full- and part-time Drexel University, including Drexel University College of Medicine faculty and professional staff toward the purchase or renovation of homes within defined borders.
Prior to initiating any contracts or commitments, the faculty or professional staff member must schedule an appointment with Althea Wallace, Director of Programs & Events (firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-895-2582) to discuss and confirm eligibility.
