Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) has created The Forward Fund, a community partnership to help move Sheboygan County forward. They have raised funding to create a new community housing development program to support the construction of new housing units. The SCEDC will lead in developing approximately 600 housing units over the next three to five years throughout Sheboygan County to bring entry-level housing to the market.
City of Sheboygan
The City of Sheboygan has purchased a sizable plot of land in the neighboring Town of Wilson, and will be used to create more housing. The land, plus an adjacent 73 acres, will be converted into residential development filled with a mix of starter homes, single-family condos, duplexes, and larger homes.
Down Payment Assistance Programs
The local economic development corporation, communities, and financial institutions work with state and regional organizations to develop down payment assistance programs for individuals seeking to locate in Sheboygan County. Many of the programs are income-based, but when you seek to purchase a home, we recommend reaching out to a local financial institution to assess local financial tools.
