Brown County Family Permanent Supportive Housing Program

Program Description:

The Brown County Family Permanent Supportive Housing Program is funded through the Wisconsin Balance of State Continuum of Care and the Department of Housing and Urban Development and will provide a permanent housing option to two chronically homeless families. The program participants will pay 30% of their monthly adjusted gross income towards their housing each month.

This project allowed funding for a duplex in Brown County to be acquired and rehabbed in order to make the housing decent, safe, and sanitary. These families will be offered intensive case management to assist them to be able to live independently in hopes of one day that they will be able to obtain a rental unit outside of the program.

Eligibility Guidelines:

Income limit must be at or below 30% of County Median Income. Learn if you may be eligible for this program by filling out our eligibility calculator here.
