Wisconsin Disaster Relief Programs for Homeowners and Businesses

 

 

Wisconsin homeowners and businesses impacted by the severe storms, tornados, straight-line winds, flooding and landslides may be eligible for financial assistance for repair, cleanup and other costs under a two new programs that will provide up to $4 million in funding, Governor Scott Walker announced September 18, 2018.

 

On October 18, 2018, President Donald Trump issued a federal disaster declaration for multiple Wisconsin counties damaged by severe storms, tornados, straight-line winds, flooding and landslides that impacted the state between August 17, 2018, and September 14, 2018.  In this declaration, individuals and homeowners are eligible to apply for federal assistance from both FEMA and SBA. 

 

In some situations, there may still be a need for additional funds to repair the home to a pre-disaster condition.  In an effort to assist this need, WHEDA has established a $2 Million fund to assist homeowners fill this gap with the Homeowner's Relief program.

 

WHEDA has emergency funding available to assist with repairs for homeowners impacted by recent flood events in Wisconsin, and WHEDA also has limited additional funding assistance available for flood-related temporary emergency housing needs.  Residents requiring emergency temporary housing must be identified by a CAP agency or other local non-profit helping victims of significant flood damage.  WHEDA will work with the local CAP or other non-profit assisting those in need - covering temporary emergency hotel expenses, other temporary rental expenses, etc.
