As La Crosse Promise wraps up year two of our Neighborhood Revitalization Program, we are excited to announce the expansion of our renovation incentives in the Powell-Poage-Hamilton and Washburn neighborhoods.
Families who qualify could receive $25,000 or $50,000 in education scholarships for significantly renovating properties in Powell-Poage-Hamilton and Washburn. To receive these incentives, renovators must invest $30,000 and $60,000 respectively.
"By next spring, this block will look dramatically different"
-- La Crosse Promise Executive Director Brian Liesinger
The program also aims to
partner well with generous renovation incentive programs offered by the City of La Crosse. The City has recently acquired a property 911 5
Ave. (pictured above) that will be marketed as a renovation project with specific requirements for renovations. The home will be an owner-occupied home and La Crosse Promise Scholarship eligible.
The home at 911 5
Avenue is directly across the street from another home (below) whose owners are taking advantage of the La
Crosse Promise renovation program. In addition, the City has demolished the condemned property 915 5
Street to make way for new home will also be La Crosse Promise eligible.
"With another new Promise home, two renovated Promise homes, and new homes built by Coulee Cap and Habitat for Humanity, you will be able to stand in the middle of this block in 2018 and witness an inspiring picture of community impact," said Executive Director Brian Liesinger.
"Working together, we improve these neighborhoods in a manner that has had a widespread positive effect on all of the city."
