Gov. Tony Evers announced millions of dollars worth of grant funding for both the city and county of Kenosha during a stop here Thursday.
Evers announced that the state has awarded $15 million in stimulus funds to help boost development of the proposed Kenosha Innovation Neighborhood at the former 107-acre Chrysler engine plant property. Evers also announced $9.85 million for the county to help relocate the County Human Services/Job Center campus to Sun Plaza, 3446 52nd St.
Evers made the announcements at the Kenosha Human Development Services center at Sun Plaza. He was flanked by city council members, county supervisors, state representatives and local activists.
“We don’t just want to rebound and recover. We want to see Wisconsin families and communities and our economy succeed for years to come. We need to make these investments today,” Evers said during the hour-long event. “It is my pleasure to invest these critical funds in Kenosha’s communities and their people.”
