W.R.A.P - Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program
The economic impact of COVID-19 has been significant. Many Wisconsin residents are struggling to make ends meet and are forced to make tough financial decisions. On March 27, Governor Evers directed Secretary-designee Palm to prohibit landlords from serving notice terminating tenancy. This temporary ban on evictions will expire on May 26. While state and federal benefits will help soften the blow, they are not expected to cover all expenses a family must manage. This significant loss of income will impact their ability to keep up with rent and threaten housing insecurity.
The Division of Energy, Housing, and Community Resources will partner with the Wisconsin Community Action Program Association, a trusted community partner to provide direct assistance to residents of Wisconsin administering this funding. $25 million will be allocated to agencies across the state for residents to apply for that meet income and need eligibility.
This program is designed to serve with and alongside local leaders and organizations because, as everyone knows, collaboration will be the key to making our Badger State thrive again. We look forward to sharing more about these programs and the grassroots work already being done in the days to come.
