Adjacent to the UW Madison, walking and bicycle paths, shopping and restaurants. Offers federally subsidized apartments to low-income elderly and/or disabled individuals.

Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
Recent Accomplishments: -In January 2008, Public Health Madison & Dane County partnered with Triangle Ministries to implement P.L.A.N. (Preparedness through Linking All Neighbors). P.L.A.N. is based on the idea that a neighborhood’s “social capital” (including overall levels of trust, reciprocity, solidarity, and cooperation) plays a key role in determining how well a community is able to respond to any event that disrupts everyday life. P.L.A.N. utilizes a community health worker model; recruiting individuals that live in the neighborhood and have a vested interest in seeing their community thrive. Community health workers are trained to provide outreach and education within their communities. While the activities of P.L.A.N. center around preparedness activities, the overarching goals are to build and bridge social capital and address issues of health inequities.

-The Brittingham Resident Association has been instrumental in seeting up an active library and computer lab in the with Internet access for resident use.
