Treasurer Godlewski visits River Falls to address Housing and Homeownership
RIVER FALLS, Wis. – Today, State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski joined local elected officials and community leaders in River Falls to address housing and homeownership. Godlewski toured an affordable housing project being led by WestCAP at 1300 South Main and then facilitated a roundtable discussion on how state and local officials, as well as community agencies, can partner to better prevent foreclosures and provide more affordable housing to those in need.
“In the wake of COVID-19, more Wisconsinites are finding themselves in tough economic circumstances,” said Treasurer Godlewski. “Strengthening our connections across state, local, and community service agencies, we can help keep people safe and in their homes while we work to combat this awful virus and build toward economic recovery.”
“As we head into the winter months and in the middle of a pandemic, it has never been more critical that we make sure people can stay safely in their homes. I was excited to have the opportunity to join Treasurer Godlewski today to learn more about her work on foreclosure prevention, and hear about the ongoing efforts of WestCAP to expand affordable housing here in River Falls and across this district.”
The discussion included State Senator Patty Schachtner, Pierce County Treasurer Kathy Fuchs, Alderperson Diane Odeen, and WestCAP Executive Director Peter Kilde. Treasurer Godlewski will be hosting a similar event in Eau Claire on Friday.
