Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (February 18, 2022) – The Door County Housing Partnership (DCHP) recently received a grant from the Women’s Fund of Door County, a component fund of the Community Foundation. This grant is for the Affordable Housing Home Collaborative Build. DCHP is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to construct a home for a single mother and her four children. DCHP keeps homes affordable in perpetuity by using the Community Land Trust model. This is accomplished through careful pricing strategies for the first buyer and a resale formula that ensures affordability to subsequent buyers.
The Door County Community Foundation recently awarded Crossroads at Big Creek A Sustainability Grant from Healthy Water Door County. This grant will be used towards funding the construction of three bridges and boardwalks which help protect the wetlands and improve water quality at Crossroads and beyond. Safe and accessible bridges will enhance the recreational experiences of learners of all ages.
