June is National Homeownership Month and this year's theme, set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is "Find Your Place." Chippewa County is the perfect place to raise a family and a business, and CCEDC along with the industry partners is recognizing the importance of homeownership as a milestone of the American Dream. Owning a home is a core American value that reinforces self-reliance and responsibility. During the month of June, CCEDC is raising awareness of the benefits of buying a home in Chippewa County. From Lake Wissota to Stanley and New Auburn homeownership has benefits for Chippewa County because home owners create positive environments for families, are more involved in civic affairs (including voting), and homeownership builds wealth.
