Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch today announced the award of more than $13.6 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to fund affordable housing developments across Wisconsin. The tax credits, which are distributed by the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), will move forward 26 developments that will create 1,367 units of affordable rental housing.
The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) is partnering with four Milwaukee-based nonprofit agencies to offer home buyer counseling, property repair and rehabilitation assessments as well as general contracting coordination. Services will be available in six Milwaukee neighborhoods.
The grand staircase and the creaky wooden floors of the Goldmann's Department Store were a source of warm familiarity for generations of Milwaukeeans on the city's South Side until the department store closed about a decade ago.
Now restored, the staircase leads to another community treasure: the Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center. The building at 930 W. Historic Mitchell Street, once home to the all-inclusive department store, now houses the all-inclusive community health center, which moved from its former location a block west about a month ago.
