June is Homeownership Month!
It's a great time to celebrate the moments of joy that take place at home, and the partners who strive to make the dream of owning a home a reality. Our Take Root Milwaukee program connects people to local resources to help them buy, fix or keep their home. TRM Logo new

Visit the calendar of events for a list of homeownership fairs, educational workshops, and other resources to help you with the dream of homeownership!

"Food As an Economic Development Tool" Feasibility Analysis: In 2014-15, UEDA worked with consulant Karen Fulbright-Anderson as part of a USDA-funded project to explore how nonprofit and for-profit organizations were incorporating the food sector in economic & workforce development activities. One key finding is that there is no real infrastructure in place that connects these various activities to other technical assistance resources available in the local food and small business sectors. This report has guided our continuing work with the Food Enterprise Development Network (FEDN). Check out out our Study Snapshot, Full Summary Report and Nonprofit Capacity Assessment Tool
