Greater Milwaukee Committee




The private-sector civic organization unites leaders in business, labor, education, philanthropy and community development in supporting broad-based, collaborative initiatives to strengthen the cultural and economic base of the Milwaukee metropolitan area. A two-year grant funds a suite of resident- and partnership-driven, equity-focused creative placemaking initiatives along the expanded Beerline Trail designed to build social cohesion and community pride among residents in the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods.
