Housing assistance programs represent the lifeblood of Community Development Alternatives and have since our inception.  The work CDA performs in housing goes beyond dollars and statistics, impacting the lives of real people. 


The CDA staff works with homeowners to find the right housing program to meet their needs.  Whether the owner is struggling with energy efficiency or requires improvements to restore value in their home, CDA has the experience to match resources with need. CDA has worked with several Southwest Wisconsin communities to implement Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Housing Preservation Grants (HPG), and other financial instruments to improve communities and restore value to homeowners. 


Community Development Block Grants


Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) are issued by the Wisconsin Department of Administration—Bureau of Housing to assist income eligible residents with housing needs.  The grant will fund loans to property owners to make eligible improvements to their property.


Terms of Loan

0% interest.

No repayment (for as long as owner continues to own and occupy the property).
