Housing Rehabilitation

City-Wide Housing Programs

Owner-Occupied Housing

Through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the City of Oshkosh provides financial assistance for housing repairs to qualified low and moderate income owner-occupants living in the city. Financial assistance is in the form of a no-interest, deferred payment loan. In most cases, loans are repaid only when the home is sold or the owner no longer lives in the home. Unless an emergency situation exists, applications are only accepted from December 15 through March 15 each year. If an emergency repair is needed, please contact the Planning Services Division at 920-236-5059.

Neighborhood Initiative Programs

The City’s Neighborhood Initiative is intended to concentrate resources (public and private) into participating areas to promote neighborhoods of choice in Oshkosh. The Neighborhood Initiative is carried out through the collaboration of various partners and programs. Together the partners treat a “neighborhood” as the customer and seek to strengthen neighborhood components to achieve outcomes in four areas: Image, Market, Physical Conditions, and Neighborhood Management. Various housing programs have been created to provide flexible financing to homeowners and investors located or looking to locate within participating neighborhoods (see map).
