$17 million Milwaukee redevelopment to receive WEDC grant

A proposed redevelopment of the historic Garfield School campus in Milwaukee will receive $250,000 from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., officials said Tuesday.

The $17 project will center on a vacant city block near North 4th Street and West North Avenue in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood. The redevelopment plans call for adding apartments, commercial space and a new home for America’s Black Holocaust Museum.

WEDC is providing the $250,000 grant through its Community Development Investment Grant program, which supports community-development work, primarily in cities’ downtowns. The awards are granted in response to the promised economic benefits of a proposed project.
