NIDC is affiliated with the City of Milwaukee's Department of City Development.
TINs sustain and increase owner-occupancy, provide high quality affordable rental housing, strengthen property values, and improve neighborhood physical appearance and quality of life. TINs focus resources for 3 years on a small area, generally 6 to 12 city blocks.
The STRONG Homes Loan Program offers partially forgivable loans to homeowners throughout the City of Milwaukee. Loans can be used to make emergency and essential home repairs and address building code orders. Loans are repayable, with a deferred payment option is available for homeowners who are low income and elderly or disabled.
PROGRAM UPDATE (5/19/2015): Due to extremely high demand, the STRONG Homes Loan Program has committed all of its available funding for 2015. New applications are no longer being accepted for the program.

The Rental Rehab program offers rehabilitation assistance to responsible investors who agree to rent to income-eligible tenants. The property must be a City of Milwaukee owned tax foreclosed property located in the Community Development Block Grant Area OR be located in a Targeted Investment Neighborhood (TIN) and meet program standards when the rehabilitation is complete. Generally, units must have at least 2 bedrooms to qualify.
The Homebuyer Assistance Program provides up to $20,000 to assist with the rehabilitation of City-owned foreclosed homes. NIDC and its development partners also have a limited number of fully rehabilitated homes available for sale.
Forgivable loans are available to assist owner-occupants with repairs in a limited number of neighborhood-based Tax Incremental Districts, a special financing tool that enables the City to borrow against the growth of tax base in order to create a pool of loan resources.
Working with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, this initiative focuses on a neighborhood’s positive attributes and works to engage neighbors and homeowners to invest in their neighborhoods and position them as good places to live.
Matching grants of up to $3,000 are available for sustainable projects that physically enhance a neighborhood and increase resident camaraderie.
