Who does the WRAP program help?

In collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Administration through the CARES Act, Community Action Coalition is assisting eligible renters who have had a significant loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In general, applicants need to be a Wisconsin resident with a household income at or below 80% of the county median income (CMI) in the month prior to the application date. Households at or below 60% of the county median income (CMI) will be prioritized for assistance. The following situations will not qualify for this program:

  • Assistance needed for Section 8 or Public Housing Authority
  • Mortgage payments

Community Action Coalition will review applications and provide assistance to eligible households on a first-come, first-served basis. The program will end once the funds are used. If you reside outside Dane, Jefferson or Waukesha counties please click here to find a service provider for your county. For additional information about the W.R.A.P. program click here.

General Appointment Hours will be between 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday.  In the pre-application, we will ask about the best time to schedule your W.R.A.P. application appointment. Appointments may be scheduled outside our typical hours.  All appointments will be made on a first come, first serve basis. All appointments will be taken over the phone. CAC will not be conducting appointments in-person. Due to COVID-19 our offices are closed to the public. Applying for the W.R.A.P. program may take up to 60 minutes. Individuals will need to provide documentation described in the pre-application. When we schedule your appointment, we will also be providing a list of required documentation you will need to provide during the W.R.A.P. application process. Please know we are doing our best to serve you as quickly as we are able.  Due to a very high number of calls, we are encouraging everyone to complete the pre-application and wait to hear back from a CAC staff member.
