The CDBG-Housing Program Brown County administers covers a 10-county region in Northeastern Wisconsin, excluding the Cities of Appleton, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Neenah, Oshkosh, and Sheboygan. The cities have their own programs. Our program provides 0% interest loans for home repairs to the principal residence (detached garages are not eligible).The loan is recorded as a mortgage on the property. Payment on the loan is deferred until such time as the home is no longer the principal place of residence which typically occurs when the home is sold, when the mortgage is refinanced, or the homeowner transfers ownership. At that point, the loan is due in full. In order to qualify for the program, there are 80% CMI income limits, which vary depending upon the number of people living in the household. These are gross income limits and include all income sources (wages, unemployment, SSI, SSDI, Social Security, child support, etc.) before any deductions. Please see attached Yr 2021 household income parameters.
Provided the homeowner qualifies under the household in come parameters and they have equity to cover improvements in their home, we would send a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Building Evaluator to their home to identify any necessity issues that would result in the home not meeting health and safety federal standards. Homeowners usually contact us by phone to discuss the program and see if they qualify. We are usually in the office between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. We usually verbally prequalify future applicants before we send our NE WI CDBG Application Package out. Please feel free to have homeowners call our general office phone of (920)448-6480 and ask for either Shelly or Todd with any questions or if they want to be prequalified.

Like mentioned before, detached garages are not covered, because the rehabilitation program concentrates on livable areas or the domicile of the home. There habilitation program does not cover cosmetic and/or update home improvements. For example, outdated carpet unless it poses a tripping hazard. Any necessity improvement issues would all be written down and a scope of work prepared. The scope would be sent out by the homeowner for general contractor bids and the most reasonable and comparable/complete bid(s) would be awarded the job. We do not allow owner carpenter by trade work.
