Wisconsin Rental Assistance (WRAP) Program
Administered by the Department of Administration (DOA), the program will provide financial assistance for rent, security deposits, and wrap around services for eligible households who have experienced income loss resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rental Assistance Program can award up to $3,000 per individual in a combination of rental payments and/or security deposits. This program is made possible through funding from the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program will be provided on a first-come, first served basis, and the program will expire once CARES funding is exhausted.
Eligible costs include direct financial assistance for owed rent and security deposits. Income must be at or below 80% County Median Income in the month of or prior to application date. You must also be 18 year or older, be on the lease, have a social security number, and you can’t be in another government support housing (i.e. public housing or Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher recipient).
