» New Homebuyer Assistance Program coming in 2014

In 2014, the City of Milwaukee will launch a new program to assist purchasers of City-owned foreclosed properties.  Check back in 2014 for details, and sign up with one of the counseling agencies below to get a jump on the homebuying process.

Anyone who wishes to participate must have completed at least 8 hours of home buyer counseling from a HUD-approved housing counseling agency. A list of these programs in the Milwaukee area is below.
 

A number of area lenders have expressed a willingness to work with homebuyers who have completed counseling and wish to participate in the NSP Homebuyer Assistance Program. View the list of lenders.
