Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers today appeared in Kenosha to announce Neighborhood Investment Fund grants that will support two major projects in Kenosha County.
$9.85 million was awarded to Kenosha County to support the relocation of its Human Services functions from the Job Center building at 8600 Sheridan Road to a facility to be developed in the Sun Plaza shopping center at 52nd Street and 30th Avenue.
A $15 million grant will aid the City of Kenosha in its planned Kenosha Innovation Neighborhood (KIN) redevelopment of the former Chrysler manufacturing site.
“I want to thank Governor Evers and his team for helping to strengthen this project with these much-needed funds,” Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser said, of the county award. “This will result in bringing our Human Services closer to thousands and thousands of people we serve, and it will be a boost to area businesses and the whole neighborhood around it.”
The Kenosha grants were announced in a news conference held at the Kenosha Human Development Services headquarters, next door to the future Human Services Building site. They were a portion of nearly $213 million in Neighborhood Investment Fund grants announced statewide.
