“We’re All In” Grants

Earlier this week the Department of Administration (DOA) announced two more initiatives that will be paid for using funds provided to Wisconsin by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.


Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program (WRAP)

The Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program (WRAP) is a partnership between the Division of Energy, Housing, and Community Resources within DOA and members of the Wisconsin Community Action Program (CAP) Association. The WRAP can award up to $3,000 to eligible households to cover rent and/or security deposits, and payments will be made directly to the property owners.



Routes to Recovery

The “Routes to Recovery: Local Government Aid Grants” program is a $200 million effort that will provide reimbursement to county, tribal and municipal governments for unbudgeted expenses they have incurred because of COVID-19.

Under Wisconsin’s campaign laws, legislative offices that are up for re-election are normally prohibited from sending mass communications from the office after April 15 of that year. Given the state of emergency, this rule has been exempted for communications related to the COVID-19 public health emergency during the state of emergency and for 30 days after the expiration of the declared public health emergency. This exemption will expire on June 10. That said, I will no longer be able to send you e-updates between June 10 and the fall election.

As always my staff and I will still be responsive to any and all concerns related to state government. If you have questions, concerns or issues that require attention from my office, we are ready and willing to continue assisting you. I look forward to your continued communication with my office.

You can also follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook page to see updates in the coming months.
