Affordable housing bill made in Door County

Legislation creating a pilot program for affordable housing was partially written with help from Door County.  Assembly Bill 544 would create a $10-million pilot program that would provide grant money or tax credits to developers.  That bill was crafted with input from officials with the Door County Economic Development Corporation.  DCEDC Business Development Specialist Tom Strong says Assembly Bill 544 would aid entry-level employees in need of housing statewide.




Strong also says that would aid Door County's current and future efforts to attract developers to available building sites.


DCEDC officials and Door County Administrator Ken Pabich took part in the Wisconsin Economic Development Association's Legislative Day.    Affordable housing and Assembly Bill 544 were a major topic of discussion among county leaders and state lawmakers. County leaders provided input on the affordable housing legislation.
