Residents  

1) Why Homes MKE Matters? : 

Homes MKE aims to have a positive impact in the lives of Milwaukee Residents by giving careful attention to Jobs, Neighborhoods, and Familes:

  • Growing Jobs and Businesses

    • Homes MKE property developers will receive workforce subsidies for hiring local residents.
    • Over 50% of the selected developers are "Emerging." Emerging Developers include developers who are working to build their capacity and business and are graduates of Milwaukee’s ACRE program or with education and/or background in a real estate development related field, with a limited portfolio of development work and/or who are at an economic disadvantage within the development community due to lack of business capital, credit or borrowing opportunities under circumstances favorable to those generally experienced by established developers.
  • Helping Neighborhoods to Flourish-

  • Families Realizing Their Dreams

    • Knowing that having a safe, stable place to call home is critical for families, the City has established a goal of 70% of the properties in the Homes MKE Program be developed for home ownership (owner occupancy).

2) Who Is Eligible To Buy The Newly Renovated Homes? :

Developers are proposing a number of creative approaches to support homeownership for Milwaukee families ranging from lease to own programs to community land trusts, as well as traditional home purchase. Check back for more information on programs and how to purchase a Homes MKE renovated property.

3) When Will The Newly Renovated Homes Be Ready For Residents To Purchase? :

Properties will be under construction in the fourth quarter of 2022, with the first properties ready for occupancy in late spring of 2023.

4) What Can I Do Right Now? :

There are things you can do now to be prepared when Homes MKE houses are ready for sale:

  • Home buyers will be required to receive 8 hours of home buying counseling from one of the City’s non-profit home buying counseling agencies below. You can begin that process by contacting an agency here:
