Water Quality Task Force Recommendations

The City of Milwaukee Water Quality Task Force has been meeting regularly since September 2016, investigating ways to make sure the city's drinking water is safe from lead in old water line pipes and lateral service lines. A final Report and Recommendations document has been approved, and highlights steps and methods that will ensure the long-term health and safety of Milwaukee's drinking water.  The next step will be for Common Council members to review it and take action on specific areas that may need it.  More news to come as it happens.

Fighting Foreclosure - Rights, Strategies & Resources

Though foreclosure rates are now at the lowest levels in more than a decade, millions of homeownders still struggle to pay the mortgage every month.

Beyond the Bell Milwaukee

Milwaukee youth now have access to more than 200 after school programs and services at their fingertips, thanks to a new app developed by Beyond the Bell Milwaukee. The app is a direct response to a 2013 survey of more than 1,000 Milwaukee youth that found “lack of program awareness” as the number one barrier to after school engagement. Youth, parents and community can download the app on Apple and Android by visiting www.beyondthebellmke.org.

Beyond the Bell is a coalition of youth-serving agencies, funders, policymakers and youth who work to ensure all young people have access to quality after school and summer opportunities.
