MILWAUKEE – Supervisor Patti Logsdon secured unanimous support Monday for her proposal to restore funding to the Salvation Army for emergency shelter services in Oak Creek and southern Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee County originally recommended no 2020 funding for the Salvation Army shelter services, which requested $6,000 under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The 2020 Milwaukee County CDBG allocation totals $1,603,413.

Logsdon worked with her colleagues on the Economic and Community Development to achieve a compromise by slightly reducing the funding for several other projects in order to provide $4800 to the Salvation Army.

Pending approval by the Board of Supervisors, which will consider the item on December 19, the 2020 plan will be published for public comment for 30 days. Any public comments will be incorporated into the final plan that will be submitted to the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development for approval.

    The Salvation Army is a church– government should not be funding a church business.

    Keep government out of religion. Keep religion out of govrnment.
