Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity participated in two NMTC transactions (2012 and 2018). The funds we received helped leverage millions of dollars of additional private investment to that we could build safe, affordable homes for low to moderate income families in some of Milwaukee’s most distressed neighborhoods. Without the NMTC we would be unable to serve as many hard working Milwaukee families who want to achieve the American dream of homeownership. Please support the extension of the NMTC for Robin, a single mom who became a Habitat homeowner because of the NMTC. For Robin, homeownership is going to mean finally having a safe, stable place where her three girls can call home. Their family is currently sharing a cramped two-bedroom apartment with Robin’s 80 year old grandmother in Milwaukee’s Northlawn housing development. Every time it rains, Robin says, the ceiling leaks right down into their home. Both Robin and her oldest daughter have asthma, which she said got worse when they moved into her grandma’s rental. “My grandma has been living there since we were little,” says Robin, “And over the years, the landlords won’t fix a thing, even though the rent keeps going up.” This and other experiences with neglectful landlords made Robin want a home of her own. She wanted to give her children a home with enough space for the whole family without having to worry about water streaming in every time it rained. Robin moved into her new Habitat home on October 31, 2019.
