The City of Milwaukee, through its Neighborhood Improvement Development Corporation (NIDC), offers a number of payback, deferred payment, and forgivable loan programs to assist residents with needed repairs to their homes. Currently, elderly residents in certain Target Investment Neighborhoods may be eligible for the HOME Rehabilitation Program which provides assistance to low-income residents for repairs. Residents throughout the City with emergency repair needs (leaking roof, non-functioning furnace, hazardous electrical, etc.) may be eligible for the Homeowner's Emergency Loan Program. In all of our programs, NIDC staff provide clients with technical assistance to help identify needed repairs, solicit contractor bids, and monitor construction. Please call NIDC or visit our website to determine if you qualify for one of these programs.
