Choice Neighborhood Plan for Holton Terrace
A Choice Neighborhood Implementation (CNI) grant application will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on September 17, 2018. The CNI grant plan will revitalize the Holton Terrace public housing development at 2825 N. Holton Street, and will help to catalyze critical improvements to the surrounding Harambee neighborhood in Milwaukee. For the CNI plan, the neighborhood is defined as Capitol Drive on the north, North Avenue on the south, Holton Street on the east, and I-43 on the west.
The purpose of CNI is to leverage significant public and private dollars to support locally driven strategies that address struggling neighborhoods with distressed public housing or HUD assisted housing through a comprehensive approach to neighborhood transformation. CNI focuses on three core goals:
- Housing – replace distressed public housing & assisted housing with high-quality mixed-income housing that is well-managed and responsive to the needs of the surrounding neighborhood;
- People – improve outcomes of households living in the target housing related to employment and income, health and children’s education; and
- Neighborhood – create conditions that encourage public/private reinvestment in distressed neighborhoods to offer amenities & assets, including increased safety, good schools and commercial activity, which increases the viability and livability of a community.
