Supervisor Jursik Congratulates Recipients of Community Development Block Grants
The Milwaukee County Board unanimously approved the allocation of 2014 Community Development Block Grant Funding.
The Milwaukee County Board unanimously approved the allocation of 2014 Community Development Block Grant Funding. These applicants were selected after presenting their proposals to the Economic and Community Development Committee, chaired by Supervisor Patricia Jursik.
These grants are part of an annual program established by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The goals are to benefit low and moderate income households, eliminate community slums and blight and to meet the urgent need of conditions that pose a threat to the health and welfare of the community.
This year there are ten county-wide projects which will receive Community Development Block Grant Funds:
- Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council
- Hope House of Milwaukee (Supportive Housing Services)
- Jewish Family Services (Peer Support)
- Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (Microenterprise)
- Milwaukee County Housing (Emergency Home Repair)
- Milwaukee County Housing (Architectural Barrier Removal)
- Grand Avenue Club (Employment)
- Hunger Task Force (Water Distribution)
- Human Concerns (Electrical Upgrades)
- Milwaukee County Parks (Sheridan Park)
“I applaud the hard work these organizations do to improve our community,” Supervisor Jursik said. “These are important entities receiving much-deserved funding to help the people of Milwaukee County.”
