Back-To-School Time and Homebuying 101

The City of Milwaukee and our partners have many unique opportunities for you to achieve your goals of homeownership. Whether you’re looking for a fixer-upper, a move-in ready home, a vacant lot to build your new home on, or are just looking to improve your current City of Milwaukee home, we can help!

Those interested in becoming new homeowners are encouraged to contact a homebuyer counselor to begin the process. Existing homeowners can take advantage of the STRONG Homes Loan, which offers a partially forgivable loan of up to $20,000 to help with essential home repairs. Continue reading below for additional resources, learning opportunities, news and updates, and the upcoming Citywide Block Party.

We also invite you to attend one of the 16th Annual Back-To-School Health Fairs on August 19 or August 26. The City of Milwaukee Health Department offers FREE backpacks for kids and FREE school supplies to those with up-to-date shot records or to those that get their shots and lead testing done at the fair. STRONG kids grow STRONG neighborhoods!
