Commercial Corridors

DCD's Commercial Corridors Team (CCT) assists the development of the City of Milwaukee's Commercial Corridors.  Staff assist businesses and property owners in making investments into the revitalization of empty and blighted commercial storefronts and building throughout the City's commercial corridors.  

CCT Staff are also the City's liason for the over 30 Business Improvement Districts and Neighborhood Improvement Districts.

Commercial Revitalization Grants

The Department of City Development currently offers grant programs to assist in the redevelopment of commercial real estate located in commercial districts throughout the City.  The Grants are reimbursements for investments in improvements to publicly facing building facades as well as interior renovations.  Restrictions apply, please visit our Commercial Revitalization Grants page for grant eligibility and requirements.

Business and Neighborhood Improvement Districts

Wisconsin State Law allows property owners in a defined boundary to petition the City to create a Business Improvement District (BID) or a Neighborhood Improvement District (NID) to fund district revitalization activities in the proposed district.  For a listing of current Business Improvement Districts and Neighborhood Improvement Districts, please visit our BID & NID Directory.
