NEW! Bronzeville Resident Homeownership Initiative

Targeted Investment Neighborhoods (TINs)

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.


STRONG Homes Loan

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.



Rental Rehabilitation Program

The Rental Rehab program offers rehabilitation assistance to responsible investors who agree to rent to income-eligible tenants.  The property must 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.

2019 Rental Rehabilitation Program Expansion


Homebuyer Assistance Program 

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.


Tax Incremental Districts (TIDs)

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.


Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative

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.


Community Improvement Projects (CIPs)

Matching grants of up to $4,000 are available for sustainable projects that physically enhance a neighborhood and increase resident camaraderie.


Love Your Block Milwaukee

Milwaukee's Love Your Block program has officially launched! Supported by the City of Milwaukee and Cities of Service, Love Your Block provides opportunities for community members and neighborhood groups to engage residents in revitalizing their neighborhood through grant funded block projects on City-owned properties and vacant lots on a block by block approach.
