The program offers ways for public housing residents, rent assistance voucher holders and others to work towards acquiring an asset that can benefit their family and the community for generations to come.

Are there any other grants I can get for my home purchase?You should ask the Homeownership Counseling Agency that you are working with about other grants that may available; sometimes the agency or the lender have grant funds. It is always good to ask.
Which Section 32 application should I complete?
Why should I buy a HACM house?
Our homes are completely rehabbed and are in move-in condition. The objective of the Homeownership Program is to help people acquire homes and stay in them as long as they would like to. We try to make sure the new homebuyer will not need to have any major repairs for a long time.
Also, there are no property taxes paid on the house for the year in which you buy it.
Can I offer less than the asking price on a HACM home?HACM does not set the prices for the houses we sell. The prices are established by an independent, third party appraiser. This is done to be fair to the other homeowners in the area, as their home values are dependent on what other homes sell for. So, no, we cannot accept less than the sale price.
Where are your houses for sale?They are all in the City of Milwaukee. Our list of available houses changes all the time, so we recommend checking our website for updates. View our Homes for Sale inventory.
