DESCRIPTION
This is the 15th Anniversary of the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (MANDI). For fifteen years, the MANDIs have recognized the “unsung heroes” working hard to revitalize our central city neighborhoods.

This year sixteen finalists will be recognized with video profiles at an Oscar-style event, and five winners will be announced. 700 guests including corporate leaders, neighborhood development groups, and government officials will attend the sold-out event honoring extraordinary efforts to revitalize Milwaukee’s central city neighborhoods.

The MANDI Awards are hosted by LISC Milwaukee (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) with sponsorship from U.S. Bank.

The MANDIs play an important role in helping create positive perceptions of Milwaukee and its neighborhoods.
