Westlawn Choice Neighborhood is part of the national Best Babies Zone Initiative, a network of nine neighborhoods across the country working to improve healthy birth outcomes and reduce racial disparities in infant mortality. Supported by a national team of advisors, each neighborhood is developing its own local strategy to ensure every baby survives and thrives. 

The Façade, Lanscaping, and Signage Grants program provides up to 80% in reimbursements for eligible costs. HUD matching funds through the critical community improvements plan and Havenwoods Economic Development Corp. (HEDC) may be available.

The Milwaukee Choice Neighborhood Revolving Loan fund is a small business loan fund administered by WWBIC to create opportunities and increase local incomes through the support of small businesses located in the Choice Neighborhood boundaries.
