Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance Available

Do you need help paying rent or utilities due to COVID-19?

Wisconsinites should not fear being evicted, having their utilities shut off, or being without a place to live because their budgets have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
​The Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) is partnering with members of the Wisconsin Community Action Program Association, as well as Energy Services, Inc., to assist eligible renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and need help with their rent, utilities, and/or other housing stability.
  • Eligible households may receive up to 12 months of assistance to help with current or overdue bills. A household may qualify if at least one or more individuals in the home meet the following:
    • Qualifies for unemployment or has experienced a reduction in household income, experienced major costs, or experienced financial struggles due to COVID-19;
    • Demonstrates a risk of being evicted; and
    • Has a household income at or below 80 percent of the county median.
