GREEN BAY – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin visited Green Bay to highlight a $1 million investment she delivered to the Brown County United Way. The federal funding was included in legislation that has been signed into law by President Biden and will support the Neighborhood Community House program.
Senator Baldwin joined Robyn Davis, CEO of Brown County United Way, Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach, and Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich. The establishment of a Neighborhood Community House is the next step to Brown County United Way’s work revitalizing under-resourced Green Bay neighborhoods. This project will provide a central place for neighborhood residents to gather, gain streamlined access to services, and foster a greater sense of belonging to where they live, work and play. Target neighborhoods are among the most economically challenged and diverse areas of the city. The federal funding will allow for the group to accelerate the process of purchasing the property and renovating the space, as necessary, as well as establishing programming that would include services related to employment and economic mobility. Other programming would center on financial literacy and mental health support.
