WHEDA, CSH join forces in a first-of-its-kind effort to promote housing for Wisconsin’s most vulnerable residents
WHEDA is partnering with CSH – a national leader in supportive housing – to connect developers and community service providers with training, tools, and financing to expand the supply of this much-needed housing in Wisconsin.
As part of the initiative, WHEDA and CSH kicked off a four-part webinar series starting February 2021 to connect developers, community service providers and other housing professionals on the basics of supportive housing, integrated housing models, supportive services, and property management.
Watch Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes comments on the webinar series.

In addition to the training opportunities, WHEDA and CSH will implement a statewide survey to better understand areas of greatest need for supportive housing and the biggest challenges in meeting those needs. Wisconsin’s housing professionals and community stakeholders are encouraged to complete the online supportive housing survey here. The survey will be open until 11:59 PM, October 25, 2021.
Supportive housing institute
Utilizing the statewide survey results, WHEDA will initiate a first-of-its-kind Wisconsin Supportive Housing Institute to provide technical assistance to developers and supportive housing providers as they navigate the complex process of developing affordable housing with access to supportive services. The institute is expected to reduce the timeline for supportive housing by improving planning and development. More information about the institute and the application process to participate will be provided before December 31, 2021.
