Emergency Housing Vouchers
The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority has been awarded 343 Emergency Housing Vouchers by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Emergency Housing Vouchers target individuals and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness, survivors of domestic or sexual violence and victims of human trafficking. WHEDA has partnered with the Balance of State Continuum of Care and the Racine City and County Continuum of Care to accept referrals for qualifying households. All referrals for the EHV program must come from the Continuum of Care (CoC); families that believe they may be eligible for Emergency Housing Voucher assistance should contact the appropriate CoC directly.
Please direct questions to email@example.com.
