Uptown Lofts project receives $1.2MM grant to support project

Wisconsin leaders are applauding U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin’s (D-WI) work to secure support for Southeastern Wisconsin in this year’s annual funding legislation. In total, Senator Baldwin secured over $260 million in direct support for over 80 community-driven projects across Wisconsin in the first and second bipartisan funding packages which were signed into law last month.

“I am proud to deliver the resources Southeastern Wisconsin communities need to confront the challenges they face and build toward a stronger future,” said Senator Baldwin. “With this funding, we’re expanding access to affordable housing, boosting infrastructure to further economic development, giving the tools our law enforcement needs to keep us safe, and so much more. These community-driven projects will strengthen our local economies, bring costs down for families, and leave a safer, cleaner environment for the next generation.”

Senator Baldwin, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, secured $1,200,000 to support construction of affordable housing as part of the Kenosha Uptown Lofts project.

“We are very grateful to receive this critical funding for the Uptown Lofts mixed-used development in Kenosha. This project will be an important step towards revitalizing the Uptown neighborhood which has endured many hardships in recent years. Thank you to Sen. Baldwin for helping KABA and its partners reach the finish line on the project with this much-needed grant funding,” said Nicole Ryf, President of the Kenosha Area Business Alliance.
