Milwaukee Soldiers Home Breaks Ground

On September 20, NEF celebrated the groundbreaking of Milwaukee Soldiers Home with its partners and government officials on the grounds of the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, a National Historic Landmark in Milwaukee. Developed by The Alexander Company and funded with low-income and historic tax credits along with grants from Citi Community Development and MetLife Foundation, the complex will provide 101 supportive housing units for veterans. The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) was also instrumental in getting the project to this day.
