December 5, 2012 – Congratulations to WISCAP member agency Couleecap, Inc. for its Community First Partnership Award.  Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago has awarded $5,000 to the Quad County Lenders Consortium, which includes Couleecap, Inc., for its collaboration with State Bank Financial.  The award is in recognition of their 14-year partnership, in which they provide down-payment assistance to first-time homebuyers, rehab and weatherization assistance to homeowners, and created Wisconsin’s first rural community land trust.
