The Milwaukee Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative together with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the City of Milwaukee have developed the Milwaukee Makeover Project.  As covered earlier by UrbanMilwaukee.com, the Milwaukee Makeover Project brings homeowners in the nine Healthy Neighborhoods together with architects to create quality, exterior improvements on their homes.

The Milwaukee Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative has applied for a $250,000 grant in the Pepsi Refresh competition to continue this project and needs your vote.  There are three different ways you can vote to support this project:

  • You can vote by visiting the Milwaukee Makeover project page here.  The first time you vote you will have to register. If you simply click on the “Vote for this idea” button it will take you through the registration process. You can vote for this project every day until October 31st.
  • You can vote via text message. All you have to do is text “103316” to the number 73774.
  • You can vote via Facebook. On the right side of our Milwaukee Makeover page there is an option to vote via Facebook. Click the link and follow the instructions. You do need a Facebook account for this option.

Additionally, on the right side of the project page you will find all sorts of tools for spreading the word about voting. There are links to post a message on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.

The Milwaukee Makeover project is making Milwaukee a better place to live, lend your support today and help them win this grant to continue their efforts.

For more information on how the project has worked so far, please see the video below:
