Nearly every action taken by the executive and legislative branches of state government affects local government. Counties need to play a pivotal role in these actions and the Wisconsin Counties Association (WCA) is the organization through which dialogue and cooperation can occur.


As an organization, WCA works diligently to provide services to our membership that allow them to serve their constituents in the most effective manner possible.

WBD, Inc.’s mission is to assist small businesses in gaining access to capital in order to grow their businesses, create jobs and build communities.


The cornerstone of WBD's success is providing access to the SBA 504 loan product. Available exclusively from not-for-profit Certified Development Companies (CDC), the SBA 504 loan fulfills the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) public policy objective to support small businesses and create jobs in our communities through long-term, fixed-rate financing.


Since 1981, WBD has helped fund over 2,500 businesses and created over 65,000 jobs in Wisconsin and Minnesota. WBD is now consistently one of the top ten most active, of the nearly 250, CDC’s in the country. WBD participates in hundreds of projects each year with Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan  lenders and serves as an integral hub in every project.

We picked the name SaveYour.Town because that is what you are going to do, save your town. No one is coming to do it for you.  No factory or big business is going to save you. No outside expert has the one right answer. It’s you.  You are going to shift a few key behaviors away from bureaucracy and officials and toward the people.


You’ll let go of old formal rules and organizations in order to empower everyone to play a small but meaningful role. You’ll focus more on tiny experiments by lots of people rather than a few big bets made by only a handful of official leaders. You’ll welcome all ideas, from all the people in your town. That’s who’s coming to save your town: all of you.
