Public Asked to Weigh in on Community Development, Housing Needs Through Survey, Workshops

Waukesha County and the HOME Consortium invite members of the public to attend workshops and take an online survey to help identify community development and housing needs in Jefferson, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha Counties.


The information gathered will provide information for the HOME Consortium’s 5-Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and 2020 Annual Action Plan. These plans will identify community development and affordable housing needs and set priorities for investment of federal grant funds to address them. They are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to receive funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME programs.

About the HOME Consortium

The HOME Consortium was created by Jefferson, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha Counties in order to become eligible to receive federal HOME program funds to support the creation and maintenance of affordable housing. The main purposes of the HOME Consortium are to advance home ownership opportunities with a down payment assistance program, and to maintain the quality of the existing housing stock through low-interest housing rehabilitation loans.
