Upcoming resources fair aims to guide a path to homeownership


The City of Madison is teaming up with multiple community stakeholders to help new homeowners or those looking to buy a home for the first time get the resources they need to navigate the process and get their questions answered from trusted sources.

Registration is now open for the Madison Homeownership Resources Fair, which will take place from 9:00am – 1:00pm on Saturday, June 29, 2024 at the Urban League of Greater Madison’s Black Business Hub at 2532 S. Park Street in Madison.

The event is being held in conjunction with Take Root Wisconsin and several other local organizations to offer a number of resource workshops, including:

  • Basic home readiness and demystifying the home-buying process
  • Budget, credit, and debt management
  • Home financing and down payment assistance
  • Panel on other pathways to homeownership
  • Basic household plumbing maintenance
  • Understanding property taxes, tax benefits, and credits
  • Post-purchase financing options (refinancing, removing PMI, etc.)
  • Panel on maintenance and repair programs

The City of Madison is committed to removing barriers to homeownership and helping new homeowners navigate some of the challenges of homeownership that can be difficult to anticipate.
