Just like a HGTV renovation, the Strong Neighborhoods program helps people find an affordable home here in Menasha and make it their dream family home. The Strong Neighborhoods program matches investments, up to $15,000, made by homeowners to help them renovate their homes.
For years the City has had programs to help low income residents repair their homes. What we didn't have was a program to help average everyday people. I know that your home is probably your most valuable asset and that's why it is so important to me that we partner in keeping every house in Menasha a desirable place to call home. Closing TIF 5 to fund the Strong Neighborhoods program afforded us the opportunity to do just that.
We've seen the impact that programs like Rock the Block have had on neighborhoods around Menasha, I believe that Strong Neighborhoods program will have an even greater long term impact.
So the next time you're watching Property Brothers and dreaming of that rehab, remember that the City is here to help make that dream a reality.
