Hispanic Heritage Month Highlight: VIA CDC

Posted on 10/02/23

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we are highlighting Wisconsin-based organizations that work to enrich, uplift, and serve the Hispanic community.

VIA Community Development Corporation (VIA CDC) envisions a world where all places equip all people to reach their full potential. Since their founding in 1995, VIA has been a partner in building strong, healthy neighborhoods where all of us can thrive. They do this by focusing on three impact areas: business, community life, and housing.

Find help starting or growing your business through 1:1 assistance, access to grants, financing, and more. Learn more about VIA's business resources.

Make sure your voice and your community are heard and seen! Fill out the census, get ready to vote and learn how else you can make a difference. Learn more about VIA's community building efforts.

Learn about resources to make home improvements including $1,000 matching grants, low-interest loans, energy efficiency upgrades, and more! Check out VIA's resources related to housing.

The zip codes where we live and work shouldn’t determine the trajectory of our lives. Generations of policies, however, have created unequal starting points for all of our communities. But by working together, cultivating fertile ground in our neighborhoods – with tools like housing development, economic development and grassroots leadership development – we can ensure that everyone has access to the things we all need to thrive.

You can keep up with VIA CDC and all their programs, offerings, and resources in several ways:
