Madison: Dane CORE 2.0 Rental Assistance Program Applications to Close May 31
Wisconsin Eagle/10224694

~ Today, Dane County and the City of Madison announced that the Dane COronavirus REntal program (CORE 2.0), funded by the Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program through the U.S. Department of Treasury, will be permanently closing its applications on May 31, 2023 due to low remaining funds. However, services to renters and landlords that provide legal representation and mediation through the Eviction Diversion and Defense Partnership (EDDP) will continue.

Since its launch in 2021, CORE 2.0 has distributed over $75 million in direct financial assistance benefits to more than 19,000 renter households in an effort to support those facing financial hardship caused by the pandemic and help them remain stably housed.

"Housing challenges, already daunting before the pandemic, became even more so as residents lost income and endured economic burdens," said County Executive Joe Parisi. "We attempted to use every resource at our disposal to prevent the threat of large-scale housing insecurity and the federal resources through CORE were able to keep many people stably housed."

Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway commented on their dedicated community partners who have supported this effort: "We greatly appreciate their support to our residents and look forward to continuing to support renter households, especially through the Eviction Diversion and Defense Partnership operated by the TRC and colleagues."

The EDDP program provides services focused on preventing evictions including mediation between tenants and landlords which has proven effective in keeping people stably housed. These services will remain available for households with eviction actions filed in court while additional housing counselors at TRC are available for tenants and landlords who need resources regarding their rights and responsibilities.
