The Village of Winneconne offers financial assistance to qualified city homeowners to make home repairs. The purpose of the program is to pay for home repairs, correct code related problems, address lead based paint hazards, and assist with handicap accessibility modifications. The program is not intended to cover remodeling type work, or the construction of new buildings or additions. The program must address all exterior property maintenance issues and identified lead paint hazards.
Assistance is provided in the form of a 0% interest deferred loan, which entails no monthly payments. The funds are repaid at such time as the homeowner sells the home or no longer utilizes it for their primary residence. The rehabilitation loan is secured by a mortgage on the property. Duplexes, renter-occupied homes and mobile/trailer homes are not eligible at this time.
The program is seeking to assist up to 4 homes in 2019. Click here for more information on downloading an application.
