What employers qualify to partner with Rural Housing 360?

Any Employer, big or small, that has an employee or new hire struggling to find housing is a candidate to partner with Rural Housing 360 to find a solution.

How does this help the company?  What's the bottom line? How much will it cost the company?

This is not a 'pay to play' type of program. All that is required from the Employer is a willingness to market the program to their employees to make them aware that the opportunity for homeownership exists. Once onboard, the Employer can choose to purchase custom posters, brochures, and payroll stuffers to get the message out as well as assign a computer in the breakroom or Human Resources to assist in their discovery. To get started, Rural Housing 360 representatives are available to come to you to assist in educating your staff and employees in understanding how to navigate the website and what lots are available in your area.

Why should Employers consider working with Rural Housing 360?

The founders of Rural Housing 360 are also rural employers, like you, and see the difficulties our employees face seeking a safe, efficient, affordable place to call home. Since 2017, we have been engaged in studying the barriers to homeownership for our nation’s workforce and those in rural communities. Being from Rural America ourselves and challenged to find solutions has culminated in the launch of Rural Housing 360. Our mission is make home-ownership possible for those who currently struggle finding options. We do this through a comprehensive approach to the problem of obtaining a mortgage approval.

If you are an employer that identifies with this message then we would like to talk.
