Local governments may apply for low- to moderate-income household assistance

Madison – The Department of Administration has Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds available to assist low-to moderate-income households with storm damage rehabilitation and repairs to their primary residence.  Examples of assistance include the repair or replacement of furnaces and water heaters, electrical, and foundation repairs.  Water sources (main water line, well pump repair/replacement) and sewer/septic repairs are also eligible activities under CDBG.

Following Governor Walker’s emergency declaration, representatives from DOA are partnering with the local governments to utilize the CDBG Emergency Assistance Program in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties.  Coordination efforts are underway in the counties as they organize a long-term recovery group for southeast Wisconsin.

A CDBG application must be submitted by a local unit of government.  Application materials can be found here.
