Our initial goal is to raise $1.5 million to earn a dollar-for-dollar match from the Wisconsin Housing Economic Development Authority, thereby creating an initial $3 million loan pool.
Another $2 million will eventually be raised to achieve a $5 million loan pool, incentivizing the construction of more than 1,000 affordable rental units in Door County over the next generation.
The Community Foundation made the first donation of $125,000 toward this effort, followed by a contribution of $500,000 from the County of Door. Ultimately, we are counting on the generosity of the people and businesses of Door County to earn the match and make this project a reality.
