MCC-NIP is Milwaukee’s oldest and most successful independent non-profit housing agency. In the current challenging real estate market we have FOUR home sales pending—more than at any time in our history. That will be 41 houses developed and sold to low-moderate income homeowners over the last decade. Our housing production efforts, funded by HUD and administered by the Milwaukee Community Development Grants Administration not only provide quality, affordable housing to low-moderate income families, but help to stabilize our city’s neighborhoods by attracting new homeowners.
Our next project will be a 4 bedroom 3 bath modular construction new home. Modular homes are factory-built, delivered and lifted into place with a crane (4 separate pieces). When complete, they are indistinguishable from normal “stick-built” construction. For example, when delivered, the kitchen cabinets are in, and there is even a chandelier hanging in the dining room. It’s very cool to watch.
MCC-NIP has four housing-related programs: NIP, YouthBuild, HAP, and CHDO.
Our Neighborhood Improvement Project (NIP) started in 1976 and is the oldest and largest owner-occupied rehab program in Milwaukee. We have provided free code-compliance repairs for over 1,000 low-income homeowners in Milwaukee.
YouthBuild has been training and educating young high school drop-outs for over 10 years, in that process we have also built and sold 14 new homes to low-moderate income homeowners, and have two more finishing construction—with accepted offers from buyers!
Handicapped Accessibility Project (HAP) builds free wheelchair ramps and lifts for low-income disabled homeowners.
Our CHDO housing production project is the program dropping this new home. CHDO rehabs foreclosed homes and builds new homes, all for sale to low-moderate income homeowners. We have completed and sold 23 houses and have two more sales pending.
