WERA – Rent Assistance Program

WERA – Rent Assistance Program



lcapLakeshore Community Action Program (Lakeshore CAP), an agency of WISCAP,* recently received another round of Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance (WERA) funds. You may apply beginning Monday, February 22nd. The purpose of these funds is to help those who were negatively impacted by COVID-19 and are struggling to pay rent. The Lakeshore CAP program will provide funding to eligible households residing in our service area —  the Wisconsin counties of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Sheboygan.

The following situations will not qualify for this program: Those receiving a Section 8 voucher or assistance through a Public Housing Authority or for mortgage payments.

Along with the rental assistance application, you will simultaneously be applying for Energy Assistance (EA). If you have applied for EA in 2021, much of your information is already within the system that generates assistance for rent. You will not be eligible for an additional EA payment. The WERA program DOES provide EA and utility help for those who qualify. If someone wants only EA, they do that through WHEAP at: If you need rent and utility help, you can apply for WERA. You do NOT have to apply for rent assistance if you only need utility assistance.

Assistance will be paid directly to your landlord once ALL information is verified!

Please go to the yellow banner on our website’s homepage at: to fill out the Pre-Screen application — available in English and Spanish.

  • Please gather ALL of the documents listed in the announcement as soon as you apply for the program
  • Find program information on the website: WISCAP / WERA
  • Read/download FAQ — and if you reside in a Wisconsin county not covered within Lakeshore CAP’s service area, find your agency here: WERA Contact & FAQ Sheet
