The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce will be using its June Power Lunch to host the Central Panhandle Association of Realtors.

The Central Panhandle Association of REALTORS® is launching a new program for area employers: the CPAR Employer-Assisted Housing (EAH) Program. Amanda Corbin, the 2021 CPAR President, and Denise Myers, the CPAR Chipola Director, will present the details and benefits of the program.
Many businesses are facing great challenges in finding and retaining employees right now. It is making headlines nationwide. Employer-Assisted Housing is a powerful benefit that area employers can offer to their staff that not only helps them recruit and retain employees but also has benefits for the workforce and the community at large. Employer-Assisted Housing is an employee benefit in the same sense as health insurance or a 401k, but it specifically concentrates on breaking down barriers to homeownership. The CPAR EAH Program focuses on four core areas to help employees create a plan to become a homeowner: homebuyer education, credit guidance, financial assistance, and optional employer benefits.
CPAR has created an EAH Certification and training program for REALTORS® and lenders so they may provide community outreach to our five-county service area. Each EAH Certified REALTOR® and lender has been trained to bring this benefit into a workplace and guide employers through implementing a custom program. If you are an employer in Bay, Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, or Washington counties, you can sign up for this program with any of EAH Certified REALTORS®. You can find more information, program benefits and EAH Certified REALTORS® at www.CPAR.us/EAH.
