Helping People Realize Their Dreams
Since 1980, WHEDA has been helping renters become homeowners. It is our unique financing options that get home buyers into a home sooner with a mortgage they can afford. That is why more than 118,000 Wisconsinites have purchased their first home with a WHEDA loan.
Since 1983, WHEDA has been partnering with local lenders to support entrepreneurs, small businesses, and community revitalization through our economic development tools.
WHEDA is proud of its over 30 year tradition of supporting agricultural development and sustainability through our agricultural guarantees. WHEDA helps agricultural based businesses with production loans, or producers who want to start, expand, or modernize their operations.
Since 1985, the WHEDA Foundation awards grants through its annual Housing Grant Program competition to assist projects throughout Wisconsin that increase or retain housing for people in crisis.
