The new center will cost $20 million, supported by the City’s purchase of Centro’s old facility for $1.7 million, according to the City website. A federal ARPA grant of $4.8 million toward the City’s South Madison Neighborhood Plan also supports the new facility.
Centro has been part of Madison since 1983 and serves the Latinx community in the city, providing programs, trainings, events and workshops.
