Lakeshore CAP WRAP Results/New WERA!

Lakeshore CAP WRAP Results/New WERA!





See below for information and link to Lakeshore CAP’s 2021 WERA (Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance) program running through November — for households negatively impacted by COVID-19!

In 2020, Lakeshore Community Action Program (CAP) received Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program (WRAP) funds resulting from the CARES Act. The purpose of these funds was to help those who were negatively impacted by COVID-19 and were struggling to pay rent or security deposit. The Lakeshore CAP program provided funding to eligible households residing in the Wisconsin counties of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Sheboygan.

From June 8 to November 25, 2020, Lakeshore CAP assisted the following number of households in our 4-county area, helping them to remain in their homes or move to safe affordable housing:

Rental Assistance
Security Deposit
Lot Rent



Lakeshore Community Action Program (CAP), an agency of WISCAP, recently received another round of Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance (WERA) funds. Pre-Screen Applications are being accepted now and can be found on our Home Page. 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. Along with the rental assistance application, you will simultaneously be applying for Energy Assistance (EA).

Information, instructions, documents and restrictions on the program can be found in our News article at https://lakeshorecap.org/wera-rental-assistance-program/ Pre-screen applications may be found on our Home Page at https://lakeshorecap.org/ in English and Spanish.
