COVID-19 Resources for Tenants & Landlords

HUD Multifamily Housing News

COVID-19 Resources for Tenants and Property Owners

We are pleased to provide you with resources to help ensure that residents of Multifamily properties are receiving stimulus payments, staying safe, and are aware of pertinent information related to the pandemic. Here is the full News Release: Stimulus, Vaccines and COVID. Please share these resources with your communities.




Door County Rental Assistance Program

To help keep struggling Door County residents from being evicted from their homes, the Door County Emergency Response Fund has partnered with Lakeshore CAP to offer an expanded Rental Assistance Program during the global pandemic and resulting recession.

You might be eligible for assistance if ALL the following criteria apply to you:

  • Lease an apartment, duplex, or single-family home in Door County as your sole residence
  • Experienced a substantial reduction in your income due to the COVID-19 health crisis and resulting economic recession
  • Virtually exhausted your savings and are now unable to meet your financial obligations

You will be asked to provide documentation to Lakeshore CAP, including proof of change in income, bank statements, and your lease. Lakeshore CAP will keep that information highly confidential. Your name will not be disclosed to any third party, nor to United Way or the Community Foundation. If you are approved for rental assistance, the check will be made payable directly to your landlord.

Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to meet all your financial needs. However, our hope is that we can help make things just a little bit easier for you during this crisis.The resources in the Door County Emergency Response Fund are limited and so we anticipate that the income and savings criteria used to determine eligibility will evolve as we have a better count of how many people will need help. Remember, the Emergency Response Fund does NOT receive any money from government. It is entirely funded by the generosity of your friends and neighbors of Door County.

Lakeshore CAP Grant for Homelessness Prevention

Lakeshore CAP Grant for Homelessness Prevention


Lakeshore CAP is proud to announce we have been awarded a grant for homelessness prevention — the HOME Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) grant from the State’s Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources to provide rental assistance to homeless families and individuals in Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee, & Sheboygan counties. The purpose of TBRA is to allow low-income households the opportunity to afford a decent rental unit in the private housing market.


Participants must meet the HUD HEARTH definition of homelessness, which means that households are literally homeless and either living in a shelter or a place not meant for human habitation.  Each participant will work with a case manager to develop a self-sufficiency plan to reach desired independence. All eligible applicants will receive an assessment and be placed on our Prioritization List. Preference is for those that are considered most vulnerable in our community. Rental units are selected by the participant and must pass a Housing Quality Standards Inspection.


Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. There are limited openings. Those who wish to apply may do so in person at any of our offices or call Lakeshore CAP at 920.682.3737 for information. See addresses and hours of operation at the bottom of our website. The application may also be found online at: https://lakeshorecap.org/supportive-housing/
