Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative

Healthy Neighborhoods residents: Invited. Involved. Invigorated.

Working with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, NIDC is promoting the Healthy Neighborhoods initiative. The approach focuses on a neighborhood’s positive attributes and works to engage neighbors and homeowners to invest in their neighborhoods and position them as good places to live.

There are seven Healthy Neighborhoods lead organizations.

Each Healthy Neighborhood designs their own program to promote their neighborhood, engaging residents around positive actions such as involving neighbors, promoting the neighborhood as a good place to live, improving neighborhood appearance and encouraging homeowners to buy in the neighborhood.
