Wisconsin Help for Homeowners

​While working with the Treasurers’ Task Force for Homeowners, Treasurer Godlewski saw the need to bring groups together to solve our housing challenges. Capitalizing on the resources and network​s created as part of the Task Force, the Office of the State Treasurer is proud to work in partnership with the Department of Administration and WISCAP to launch the Wisconsin Help for Homeowners program to help keep Wisconsinites in their homes. Whether it's someone who ​​fell behind on their mortgage payments because they lost their job due to COVID-19, or someone who missed a few property tax payments and is struggling to catch up; Wisconsinites need this assistance, and the Office of the State Treasurer is proud to be a part of the efforts to provide this relief.


​Using $92.7 million in​ federal funds, the program is intended to cover costs of homeownership, including mortgage payments, property taxes, and utility payments for Wisconsinites.

The program application is now live, and Wisconsinites can begin applying for assistance. Visit homeownerhelp.wi.gov​ to learn more about the program including, eligibility requirements, and start your application!
