Mayor Mason Message

Welcome to GROW Racine! As Mayor of the City of Racine, I want everyone who lives in our City to know that we believe in your potential.

At the City of Racine, we are focused on exactly what GROW stands for: Growing Residents’ Opportunities and Wealth! GROW Racine wants to help our residents earn their high school degree, start family-supporting jobs in the trades, become homeowners, and repair and improve their houses.

We are investing in our residents’ futures with these GROW Racine programs, and this website puts all of these resources in one place. Whether you’re a resident using these programs to improve your family’s future, or you’re a resident who wants to support and encourage residents working to GROW, we welcome you to these City resources. Together, we can grow and transform Racine.
