Are there opportunities to create residential improvement districts freezing the tax levels of all households within certain districts?
Maria Prioletta
57:59
The legislature authorized a loan program that WHEDA administers which provides deferred payment loans low income seniors to pay their property taxes.. So, one class of homeowners gets assistance to pay their taxes. Is this an alternative to address the issue?
Beth Van Gorp, Milwaukee Habitat
58:45
Is this the same reason that prevents more local option sales taxes or other local increase options for sales tax increase being enacted by Milwaukee?
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
58:46
Maria, my understanding is that is allowed due to the fact the bill is uniform, even if the administration (when they are paying) is deferred
ANGELA MARION

From an insurance prospective, assessment value vs replacement value will be different.
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)

ACTS is lending in partnership with Legal Aid. They are also lending to help people vacate foreclosure judgements, as well.
Theo Lipscomb
01:07:52
Perhaps the reference was to the "Internal Improvements" restrictions on public funds for housing versus uniformity.
Johanna Jimenez
01:16:22
Wisconsin Help for Homeowners will be able to help with tax delinquencies as a result of financial hardship due to COVID-19. The program is still in the works and needs a final approval from the Fed. Treasury.
Johanna Jimenez
01:16:56
We are hoping to launch the program mid to late February.
William Schmitt
01:17:18
Maybe this is where the presentation is headed... what is the current status in Madison and assessment of the prospects for the slog of advancing this through the legislature, any points of shared interest between urban/peri-urban/rural communities that have been identified or proved decisive in other states, and Reps/Sens. focused on this issue already?

Maria Prioletta
01:18:33
Johanna, how is the program being funded?
Geoffrey Cooper
01:18:40
What about timing issues? … I.e. delaying repayment until sale? A twist on WHEDA PTDL Program
Johanna Jimenez
01:18:56
Maria ARPA funds.
william kopka
01:19:22
Every city in WI is working toward workforce housing, so bipartisan support for legislative change is more likely now than ever before...the whole state shares interest in this.
Maria Watts
01:19:33
when are you emailing the presentation ?
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
01:19:45
Geoff, I can talk to that briefly
Zilber Family Foundation
01:21:16
Maria, we can email the PPT later today
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
01:21:28
Bill, I agree with you on the urgency and need. Don't think the individual politics and political structure is lined up with that though.
Amy Turim
01:22:05
Johanna, I am sorry if I missed it - does the program only help people who have both mortgage delinquency and tax delinquency? Or will it also help people who have paid off any mortgages and only own taxes?
Amy Turim

The Wisconsin State Treasurer gathered treasurers and community partners to speak to this issue
Moira Fitzgerald
01:23:09
Agreed. Urban & Rural and would look beyond Madison to Green Bay and other communities such as Fox Valley ie Republican. Many looking for diversified streams.

Thanks Irma! for adding that.
Irma Yepez
01:25:06
yes ^^^- the WI Take Root Milwaukee came about from this work - to form a collective voice, as I understand. Johanna thanks for this update
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
01:28:04
Geoff, one of the structural issue in WHEDA's product, from my perspective, is the costs of ongoing appraisals are passed along to the homeowner. A low income homeowner, making under 25k annually, coming up with the $400-500 to certify into the program for the privilege of deferral, seems like a stretch
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
01:28:15
A from scratch program could structure something differently
Tony Panciera, MKE United (he/him/his)
01:29:58
checked my numbers: $245 in first year and then $75 annually after that. so slightly lower, but still a concern
Moira Fitzgerald
01:31:49
Thank you for the optimism Teig!
Dawn Hutchison-Weiss
01:31:50
Thanks for bringing that up, Jermaine.
