Grow Southwest Wisconsin

Growing a vision for Southwest Wisconsin…together.


Grow Southwest Wisconsin was a three-year planning project dedicated to better position our region for the challenges and opportunities of the future. This three-year project, funded by a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is managed by Southwestern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SWWRPC) and overseen by a Consortium of 17 local governments and organizations in communities across Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, and Richland counties. Together, we are working on making southwest Wisconsin the best place that it can be for our grandchildren.
