Map of Qualified Census Tracts in the City of Milwaukee - Recognizing the disproportionate impact of the pandemic-related recession on low-income communities, local governments have been asked to identify whether certain types of projects funded through the American Rescue Plan Act are targeted to economically disadvantaged communities, as defined by HUD’s Qualified Census Tracts (Qualified Census Tracts have at least 50 percent of households with incomes below 60 percent of the Area Median Gross Income or have a poverty rate of 25 percent or more).

Unemployment Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Milwaukee Workers (April 2021) - The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immense and widespread impact on Milwaukee workers. To better understand this impact, the Office of Equity and Inclusion analyzed claims for unemployment benefits filed from March 2020 through January 2021 for workers living in the City of Milwaukee. The analysis provides insight into Milwaukee workers seeking unemployment benefits over the first eleven months of the pandemic: where they lived, where they worked, how much they made before the pandemic, and the period of time over which they filed for unemployment benefits.
