The MANDI Awards celebrate Milwaukee’s diverse neighborhoods, and the many passionate, committed people working together to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.  The Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (known as MANDI) celebrate the “good news” of successful efforts to revitalize neighborhoods and strengthen the community. From public nominations, a volunteer Selection Committee has named 15 finalists for the awards this year. Mandi Award winners will be announced at a gala on Thursday, April 6, 2017.


Sponsored by U.S. Bank, in partnership with LISC Milwaukee, the MANDIs recognize individuals, organizations, and corporations who are improving conditions in Milwaukee’s central city neighborhoods. The event brings together more than 800 leaders from across the city. Finalists are selected from public nominations by a 40-member, independent, cross-sector volunteer committee.

Videos detailing each finalist will be posted to the Neighborhood News Service for an online voting campaign for a “People’s Choice” award, between March 27th through April 5th.
