Community Development Alliance

The Community Development Alliance is an affiliation of community development funders and practitioners who have collaborated for over a decade on neighborhood improvement efforts in Milwaukee. As a funder and founding member of the CDA, the Foundation is collaborating with public and private partners to advance Milwaukee’s first-ever collective, affordable housing plan. The plan aims to advance racial equity by providing a quality, affordable home for every Milwaukeean.

The Foundation’s priorities around housing are aligned with the CDA’s strategies to:  

  • create new opportunities for Black and Brown homeownership 
  • preserve existing Black and Brown homeowners 
  • create new, affordable rental homes 
  • preserve existing affordable rental homes and support renters
