Housing Funds Awarded to Douglas County and the Northwest Regional Housing Program

Douglas County, acting as the lead county for the ten county Northwest Regional Housing Program, has been awarded $2,000,000 in funds to assist income eligible low- to moderate income households with housing rehabilitation activities.

The Housing Program is represented by the counties of Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, and Washburn. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides federal funding to states through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Energy Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR) use the federal funding to provide affordable housing, suitable living environments, and expanded economic opportunities for persons with low and moderate incomes.

The Northwest Regional Housing Program will use the funding to provide eligible low- and moderate-income owner occupied households with zero percent interest rate, deferred payment loans. Landlords can also apply for funding assistance to make repairs to rental units occupied by low- to moderate-income occupants. Loans to landlords have a zero percent interest rate with monthly payments for up to 10-years.

Typical housing improvements include repair or replacement of a dwelling roof, septic system, water lateral, windows, doors, siding, electrical, well, plumbing, insulation, and other housing rehabilitation needs or issues. Funds are not intended to remodel a home, but rather address issues due to deferred maintenance or other home repair issues.

The Housing Program is administered by Northwest Regional Planning Commission. For more information on the Housing Program, please contact Ashtin Gronning at 715-635-2197.
