NIP – Neighborhood Improvement Project
The City of Milwaukee’s Neighborhood Improvement Project (NIP) assists eligible owner occupants in repairing their homes. All repairs are based upon municipal building code violations, lead hazard reduction, health and safety concerns. NIP is not a remodeling program. The repairs are authorized by the Department of Neighborhood Services (DNS) and funded by the Community Development Grants Administration (CDGA). To be considered for NIP program eligibility, homeowners must meet the guidelines listed below. Applicants must reside within one of the 18 Neighborhood Strategic Planning (NSP) areas for the City of Milwaukee (the Community Development Block Grant area) – see map.
Note: You may participate in the NIP program one time only. If you have received previous service through the NIP program or another federally funded city home repair/home loan program, you may not be eligible.
