MADISON, Wisc. – Organizations throughout Wisconsin that provide emergency shelter, transitional residences, and extremely low-income housing have more time to apply for grants from the WHEDA Foundation with the deadline extension to September 15.
“So much uncertainty exists in the construction industry, including supply chain issues, rising costs for materials, and a shortage of construction providers – factors making it difficult for grant applicants to acquire the necessary bids to apply,” said Elmer Moore, CEO and Executive Director of the WHEDA Foundation.
The three-week application extension is intended to help ensure the Foundation receives high-quality proposals that meet the housing needs of Wisconsin’s most vulnerable residents. The funds aim to improve housing for community members with complex needs such as individuals who have developmental or intellectual disabilities, people who are experiencing intimate partner violence, individuals with incomes at or below 30 percent of the area median income, youth experiencing homelessness, and people with mental and behavioral health conditions.
The extension does not change the timeline for reviewing and deploying the funds before the end of the year as communicated in the previous request for proposals. Organizations that have already applied do not need to resubmit applications.
