Residential Preference Program (RPP)

The City of Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works helps individuals from the community gain access to employment opportunities on the various construction projects in the City of Milwaukee. Contractors bidding on certain public and private projects within the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) financed with public tax dollars must hire a percentage of City of Milwaukee residents to work on those projects. To verify your eligibility, WRTP/BIG STEP issues a certification to qualified individuals. Certification becomes invalid if you move outside Milwaukee city limits and will need to update certification with new city of Milwaukee address upon moving.
