The livelihood of our communities is directly linked to quality services and infrastructure that support economic competitiveness. Wisconsin communities that mobilize people and resources inspire positive and substantive local development. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s Community Development Investment Grant Program helps transform communities by supporting local development that is as unique as the communities in Wisconsin.
The Community Development Investment Grant Program will support urban, small city and rural community re/development efforts by providing financial incentives for shovel-ready projects with emphasis on, but not limited to, downtown community-driven efforts.
Grant recipients must demonstrate significant, measurable benefits in job opportunities, property values and/or leveraged investment by local and private partners.
