LAND not only provides tools and building materials to residents, they also empower them with the knowledge of programs to assist them in restoring their community. Programs funded by the City of Milwaukee, such as the Minor Home Repair Program, reimburse homeowners for 50%, up to $750.00, of qualified home repairs. LAND works to ensure that word gets out about these programs so that residents can take advantage of them.
The HomeSource staff also works to encourage residents to take ownership of their neighborhood and watch for building violations. By empowering each and every individual there is a greater opportunity for positive change.
