WE HAVE 2 TYPES OF PROGRAMS FOR ELIGIBLE HOUSEHOLDS
Prevention Program provides payment directly to a landlord to help prevent a household from becoming homeless if they are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. This program provides up to one month towards rent if all eligibility criteria are met.
Rapid Rehousing (RRH) and Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) use the Coordinated Entry System that prioritizes households that are the most vulnerable on a list called the “Prioritization List.” Applicants may be referred to the List by Lakeshore CAP or through the partnerships we have with local shelters. A brief assessment is completed and a referral to the List is then made. To qualify for TBRA or RRH, you must be literally homeless. RRH & TBRA provide ongoing rental assistance and households work closely with case managers towards becoming self-sufficient.

Wisconsin Homeless Management Information System
This Agency receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and/or a federal, state or local public or private entity to provide services for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. In order to receive this funding, this agency must participate in the Wisconsin Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), which is administered by the Institute for Community Alliances. This system collects basic information about clients receiving services from this agency in order to get an accurate count of individuals and families who are homeless, and to identify the need to provide different services. This agency will collect and share only the information that we consider to be appropriate. The collection and use of all personal information is guided by strict standards of confidentiality. A copy of our Privacy Notice describing our privacy practices is available to all consumers upon request. Your information will be shared with other area agencies that participate in HMIS, unless you request that your information remain closed (confidential). Keeping your information closed means that your information will only be available to case workers and intake workers within this agency. If you are interested in keeping your records closed, please talk to a case manager or intake worker.
