Homeownership in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) has been the State of Wisconsin’s trusted partner for affordable homeownership for more than 50 years. WHEDA is mission-based and our mission is simple: to stimulate the state’s economy and improve the quality of life for Wisconsin residents by providing affordable housing and business financing products.

WHEDA has helped more than 137,800 Wisconsin renters, first-time home buyers, non-first-time home buyers, eligible veterans and more achieve their dream of homeownership and finance their principal residence with a WHEDA loan. Why did they choose WHEDA? Because WHEDA offers unique financing options that get buyers into a home sooner, with a mortgage they can afford long-term.

Because WHEDA is the State of Wisconsin Housing Finance Authority, we cannot offer our programs directly to consumers, but utilize a network of approved banks, credit unions and mortgage banks throughout the state.
