The Strong Neighborhoods Program is an initiative developed by the Village of West Milwaukee to help increase the attractiveness of West Milwaukee housing stock. Strong Neighborhoods aims to work with citizens to invest in both them and their homes. The Strong Neighborhoods initiative will assist with property maintenance order compliance. The new programs will be financed through a TIF financing law known as the “Affordable Housing Extension” that allows the extension of a TIF to benefit a municipalities housing stock. Funds for these programs will be available in the form of grants as outlined in State Statute 66.1105. Investing in the Village’s housing stock will result in a ripple effect that will benefit everyone within the Village. Please see the links below for more information.
Milwaukee County Home Repair Program. The Milwaukee County Housing Division provides a Home Repair program funded by federal CDBG and HOME funds by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in suburban County communities excluding the Cities of West Allis and Milwaukee. The program offers 0% interest loans to income-qualified homeowners to make necessary repairs, correct code violations, and receive accessibility modifications. Staff assists clients by creating a detailed scope of work and works with private contractors to receive bids for the work to be done. Homeowner(s) review bids received and select a contractor from cost reasonable bids. Once a contractor is selected, the Homeowner(s) will sign a Loan Agreement and Promissory Note with the County. The loan is secured by a Lien on the owner’s real estate. The County will facilitate an agreement with the contractor for the work to be completed per the scope. After the project is completed, the County pays contractors from loan funds. The Homeowner(s) pay the County back according to the terms of the loan. Please call (414) 278-4917 if you are interested in applying for the program. For more information, please read this CDBG Home Repair Flyer.
