WHEDA Housing Grant Deadline Extended

The application deadline for the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) Foundation grant has been extended to Sept. 15. 

The program’s mission is to assist in improving the state’s housing for special-needs populations such as veterans, domestic-abuse victims, and people who are physically impaired or disabled, have run away or are experiencing homelessness. The grants are for physical improvements such as rehabilitation, accessibility features and new construction.

A total of $1 million will be awarded for the 2022 cycle, with awards to be announced in December. The maximum individual grant award is $50,000 per project.  

Those eligible to apply include nonprofit organizations; cooperatives; community-development, redevelopment and housing authorities; local units of government; and Native American tribal authorities.
