DCEDC Releases Home Buyer Assistance Video

The Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC), in partnership with a number of other organizations, recently released a new home buyer assistance video, designed to highlight and promote locally available programs that can provide down payment and/or rehabilitation financial assistance for income-eligible households in Door County. DCEDC has maintained a Workforce Housing Committee for many years to address issues related to affordable worker housing in Door County.

The new video, produced by Peninsula Filmworks, is available for viewing on the DCEDC YouTube channel, The video, along with additional home buyer assistance information, is also on Other partners in the production include the Door County Board of Realtors (DCBR) and Lakeshore Community Action Program (L-CAP).

The home buyer assistance programs highlighted in the video are under-used in our area due to the difficulty of getting the information to those who might potentially be eligible. Studies also show that Millennials are a particular target group for home buyer assistance programs; to engage with that demographic, the NexGen Door County Young Professionals Network will help market the video and target that group’s membership.

Any employer interested in hosting a home buyer awareness program for their employees should contact Sam Perlman, DCEDC Economic Development Manager at [email protected].
