Newcap has recently been certified as a Community Development Organization and are assembling regions to apply for these development funds. 

Region 1: Marinette, Oconto and Florence counties;
Region 2: Shawano, Langlade, and Menominee counties; and
Region 3: Brown County.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring these funds to our communities in order to create jobs and improve the lives of our residents and communities.   We are even more excited that, when repaid, these funds will get used over and over again for these goals in our area!

As a CDO, Newcap’s new Project Review Committees will make loans to eligible businesses and developers.  READI applications must include both an economic development project as well as a housing project.  We plan to include a jobs training component as well.  Grantees may receive up to $1 million, as follows: $500,000 for Economic Development, $300,000 for Workforce Housing, and $200,000 for Job Training. 

CDBG funding requires that all projects must meet one of three National Objectives; however, under READI, all projects must benefit of persons of low and moderate income (LMI).

1 Economic Development Priorities under READI: facilitate economic development and job creation for low to moderate income (LMI) persons.

2 Housing Priorities under READI: rehabilitate and/or expand housing stock in rural communities to ensure housing opportunities exist for low to moderate income households.

3 Job Training Priorities under READI: provide training resources and opportunities which ensure that LMI individuals have the necessary skills for the newly created positions.

Newcap is actively seeking economic development projects that are new or are expansions of existing businesses and are seeking additional funding for your project to get across the finish line!

The Wisconsin Weatherization Assistance Program is funded with a combination of state and federal funds including U.S. Department of Energy, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and state Public Benefits funding.  The Weatherization Assistance Program helps homeowners and renters reduce energy consumption while increasing comfort in their homes.  Weatherization improvements may also make the home’s environment healthier and safer.

Once eligibility has been established, the client will be contacted by one of Newcap’s certified Energy Auditors who will perform a comprehensive energy audit on the home to determine what energy efficiency measures can be done within the scope of the program. Upon completion of the energy audit a Weatherization crew will be scheduled to come to the home to perform the work prescribed by the audit under the careful supervision of a Field Coordinator.   Energy efficiency measures may include insulating of attics, sidewalls, and crawlspaces or basements; sealing air leaks; repair or replacing inefficient furnaces or boilers; installing energy saving products such Energy Star rated light bulbs, refrigerators and/or freezers. A sign-off of acceptable work is required from the owner or renter of the property, with quality control performed on a percentage of the completions.
