Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II, chair of the Community and Economic Development Committee, reminds Milwaukee residents, community organizations and nonprofits that the deadline is fast approaching to submit program funding proposals for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. Completed proposals are due to the Community Development Grants Administration no later than 2 p.m. on Friday, August 19,
2016.

The RFP application packet and additional information can now be accessed at http://city.milwaukee.gov/CommunityDevelopment310.htm. In addition, copies will be available for viewing at the following Milwaukee Public Libraries: Main Library, 814 W. Wisconsin Ave.; Capitol, 3969 N. 74th St.; Center St., 2727 W. Fond du Lac Ave., Zablocki, 3501 W. Oklahoma Ave., and Forest Home, 1432 W. Forest Home Ave.

Alderman Stamper said his focus (and the charge of the Community and Economic Development Committee) is centered on youth services and employment. “We are looking to allocate more than $2.6 million to help bring positive impacts on key issues affecting Milwaukee, including youth achievement and employment, neighborhood revitalization and economic development,” he said.

Other service categories crucial to the development of the community that could be bolstered with CDBG funds, according to Alderman Stamper, include planning, capacity building, community housing development, affordable housing, help for homeless persons, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA, which covers the four-county Milwaukee metropolitan area).
