The Warhawk Real Estate Foundation ("Foundation") is an entity separate from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater that owns a number of vacant lots within the City of Whitewater. The Foundation has created the Faculty and Staff Down Payment Assistance Program to help the university with its stated goal to "attract, retain and support sufficient numbers of faculty and staff who are committed to innovatively promoting student learning and fostering student success."

Specifically, the Down Payment Assistance Program allows full-time UW-Whitewater employees to purchase a lot from the Foundation for the construction of a new house. Effective immediately, all lots will be priced at $15,000. The employee will work with the lender of their choice to secure financing for the purchase of the property, and a construction firm of their choice to build a house on the property. If the employee signs a construction contract within two years of the purchase of the lot, and has maintained employment at UW-Whitewater, the Foundation will provide $5,000 toward construction in the form of a check made out to the construction firm.

Currently, the lots available are highlighted on this map:
