MADISON – Low-and moderate-income persons looking for affordable housing can
access over 100,000 free listings at www.wifrontdoorhousing.org. Housing
providers can list their available units for free on this site.

“Use of the WIFrontDoorHousing database is at an all-time high, with over
100,000 listings available,” said Department of Commerce (Commerce)
Secretary Mary P. Burke. “This is the most comprehensive affordable housing
database in the nation. Through on-screen search locators, it simplifies
the housing search and advertising process by offering prospective tenants
free access to rental information and a free-of-charge listing service for
housing providers.”

The WIFrontDoor Housing website provides a statewide directory of affordable
public and private housing units available for low- to moderate-income
households. These individuals can quickly access the database and choose
housing units that best meet their needs. Housing providers can quickly and
efficiently list affordable housing units, post vacancies and remove leased
units. They can list property amenities, post photographs, rental agreements
and much more. The site was developed by the Bureau of Housing with generous
financial support from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development
and the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority.

Property owners and managers can list rental units by visiting the site, and
signing up for a free account. For additional support or program
