Homelessness Gaps & Needs Surveys

Homelessness Gaps & Needs Surveys

The Wisconsin Balance of State Continuum of Care (WIBOSCOC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving all the counties in Wisconsin except Dane, Milwaukee, and Racine.  ​Our membership is comprised of agencies who serve, support and care about those experiencing homelessness. 

As a WIBOSCOC member, Lakeshore CAP needs your feedback!  We are looking for 25 surveys from area providers and surveys from at least 25 clients. The deadline is November 15th.

If you have applied for or received services through Lakeshore CAP or another provider, please:

If you are an agency in our service area (Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door and Kewaunee counties) that works with the homeless population, please:

Take the Gap and Needs Survey here: Provider Survey

The gaps and needs group’s purpose is to research and identify the gaps in services and the needs of the Balance of State’s serving populations and agencies. This group will be able to compile data and provide supportive evidence for identifying these gaps and needs. This group will also be a vital advocate and voice for the populations and service providers within the Balance of State.

New Eviction Moratorium

New Eviction Moratorium


The CDC has issued a federal eviction moratorium in effect starting 9/4/2020 until 12/31/2020.

Click on this link: Here’s what the CDC’s nationwide eviction ban means for renters.

You are still responsible to pay your rent and you must provide your landlord a declaration indicating that you cannot pay.

You should pay as much on your rent as you can each month because you will owe ALL of it at the end of the moratorium. A copy of the declaration should be posted online soon for tenants to download and sign. 
Residents of Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee and Sheboygan counties may apply for rental assistance by clicking on one of the applications on Lakeshore CAP’s homepage at https://lakeshorecap.org/. The WRAP application is for anyone who has lost income due to COVID-19.

LCAP Awarded 2019 AHP Award

LCAP Awarded 2019 AHP Award

Lakeshore CAP’s Home Buyers Program

LCAP was chosen for a 2019 AHP (Affordable Housing Program) award by FHLB of Chicago! Our program supports neighborhoods, builds personal equity and can be more affordable than renting.

Thank you, Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago — and our project sponsor Bank First — for helping us realize the dreams of 20 qualifying low to moderate income households with up to $6000 each in assistance!

What is the AHP?

The Affordable Housing Program facilitates the development of affordable rental housing and home ownership opportunities for very low-, low-, and moderate-income households. Through a competitive application process, the FHLB of Chicago provides grants to it’s members and their local project to finance affordable housing initiatives.

For instance, the Bank evaluates the application of each project that meets all eligibility standards. The Bank scores the applications on the basis of pre-established criteria and ranks them based on this scoring process. Then, funds are awarded to the highest-ranking projects in order until all available funding has been awarded.
