  • WHEDA’s impact in Wisconsin since 1972

    The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) was created in 1972 by the Wisconsin Legislature to meet an increasing need for affordable housing financing. The Legislature broadened WHEDA’s mission in 1983 to include financing for the expansion of business and agricultural activity in the state. As a lender, WHEDA has over $2 billion in assets.
