Northwest Side Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC)

Founded in 1983 to enhance the standard of living of Milwaukee’s northwest side, NWSCDC helps foster collaborative projects that aim to create jobs and spur economic development. Its most recent project is Villard Square, an $11 million, mixed-use development that combines a Milwaukee Public Library branch with 47 units of mixed-income housing for families where grandparents are serving as primary caregivers. As a certified community development financial institution, NWSCDC also offers loans to private firms locating or expanding in the northwest side that agree to create jobs for low-income residents. Since 2000, NWSCDC has lent over $6 million to businesses that have created over 500 jobs.
