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:

“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.”
