GRANTS & LOANS

CITY LOANS/GRANTS FOR HOUSING REHABILITATION

The City’s Neighborhood Initiative is intended to concentrate resources (public and private) into participating areas to promote neighborhoods of choice in Oshkosh. The Neighborhood Initiative is carried out through the collaboration of various partners and programs. Together the partners treat a “neighborhood” as the customer and seek to strengthen neighborhood components to achieve outcomes in four areas: Image, Market, Physical Conditions, and Neighborhood Management. Various housing programs have been created to provide flexible financing to homeowners and investors located or looking to locate within participating neighborhoods.

BEING A GOOD NEIGHBOR

Living in a great neighborhood requires “Responsible Freedom” – to make choices in pursuit of our own interests and lifestyles which do not detract from the neighborhood as a whole by upholding laws, statutes and City of Oshkosh Municipal Codes (MC) and expecting the same of others!
