DOOR CO RENTAL ASSISTANCE FUND

DOOR CO RENTAL ASSISTANCE FUND

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.

2020-2022 Lakeshore CAP

Community Needs Assessment

This assessment covers the counties of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Sheboygan. The qualities assessed are the conditions affecting the low-income population in the four-county area. The information used in the report is gleaned from surveys of low income participants including the elderly, pregnant adolescents, minority populations, the homeless, and single parent households. The details of the data collection address the requirements of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) statutes and provide an opportunity for both the impoverished and civic leaders to participate. It can be found here and also on our Who We Are web page. Click either link below to read, download or print the statistics, comments and conclusions:

The survey was distributed throughout the months of June and July 2019. Surveys were made available at Lakeshore CAP’s facilities for completion during intake, online and through agencies such as Catholic Charities, WIC program offices, local health departments, food pantries, domestic violence agencies, homeless shelters, mental health support services and other partner locations throughout the four counties. Low income survey respondents totaled 202 and stakeholder respondents totaled 112.
