Help make ends meet
The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated societal inequality on many fronts, including access to affordable housing. Federal, state, and local programs offered aid to tenants struggling to make rent due to the impacts of the coronavirus. But with the unwinding of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, programs like the Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance Program are now closed to applicants.1 Evictions in Wisconsin have already returned to pre-pandemic levels, spelling trouble for tenants still unable to afford rent payments.2
