WHEDA FAQs for homeowners, renters, housing providers in response to COVID-19

Last Updated 1/7/2021


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WHEDA has adjusted operations to protect our employees and the communities we serve. We continue to deliver the level of service our customers have come to expect and we remain focused on expanding access to affordable housing and economic opportunity.

We sincerely appreciate your support and patience as we work together during this critical time to serve Wisconsin communities and residents.

As the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic changes, so does WHEDA’s response. WHEDA also is monitoring developments related to the $2 trillion fiscal stimulus bill. The bill contains billions for homeless assistance and rental assistance as well as provisions that place a moratorium on home foreclosures and provide forbearance from payments with no penalties or additional fees.

The Department of Administration, Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR) will administer the new Wisconsin Help for Homeowners (WHH) Program. WHH will provide mortgage assistance to qualified households in the State of Wisconsin. More information is available on DEHCR's Wisconsin Help for Homeowners (WHH) program page. 

COVID-19 is creating a very fluid situation. WHEDA will continue to monitor and update these FAQs as conditions continue to change.
