Zilber Neighborhood Initiative

In 2008, the Foundation announced the 10-year Zilber Neighborhood Initiative and selected several Milwaukee neighborhoods for targeted investment. Since then, residents, nonprofit leaders, educators, and business owners in Lindsay Heights, Clarke Square, and Layton Boulevard West have come together to envision the future of their neighborhoods and take action. Progress is evident and conditions in all three neighborhoods are improving.

In 2019, the board of directors committed to continuing to invest in the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative for five more years. Going forward, the Foundation will work in partnership with neighborhood organizations and resident leaders to focus on addressing issues of housing and community economic development.
