The Brown County Planning and Land Services Department will be administering the State of Wisconsin Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)–Housing program for the Northeastern Wisconsin region, which includes Calumet County.  There is approximately $2 million in funding available across the region with approximately $120,000 in project funds for Calumet County.

In general, projects for CDBG-Housing funds may include:

  • Zero-percent deferred payment housing rehabilitation loans to low- and moderate-income (LMI) owner-occupied households.  Projects could include such actions as replacement of private on-site wastewater treatment systems or wells, new electrical or plumbing systems, lead paint or asbestos abatement, roof replacement, or any other rehabilitation deemed necessary to meet housing quality standard (HQS) inspection.  This will be the primary point of emphasis for the program.
  • Two-percent installment housing rehabilitation loans to owners of LMI renter-occupied units.
  • Accessibility improvements such as wheelchair ramps and wider doorways for LMI households.
  • Homebuyer assistance such as down payment and eligible closing costs. 

For more information about this program, visit the Brown County website or contact Todd Mead, Brown County Planner 1 - Housing, at 920-448-6480.

Be advised the CDBG-Housing Program and funding is different from the Calumet County Homebuyer Program.
