  • Transform Milwaukee Initiative

    WHEDA supports the Transform Milwaukee Initiative and is focused on supporting 5 core strategies:

    • Expand business development and innovation with new and existing financing resources to spur job creation
    • Reduce the number of foreclosed and vacant properties to make neighborhoods more desirable for housing and business development
    • Foster partnerships between state agencies and nonprofit community groups to increase job training, skill enhancement and educational opportunities
    • Create storm water runoff conveyance systems – bioswales – as an alternative to storm sewers to prevent future flooding events
    • Direct resources to established intermodal transportation infrastructure – water, air, rail and highway systems
