State of Wisconsin EHH 2020-2021 Application


Due to current circumstances, DEHCR has decided to make changes to the 2020-2021 EHH Application Process.


For the 2020-2021 grant year, DEHCR will renew all existing 2019-2020 EHH contracts for another cycle. Current contract holders will receive HPP and HAP award letters in the coming weeks reflecting the 2020-2021 allocation award amounts. The due date for EHH application materials will be extended to June 1, 2020. New contracts will be issued prior to the July 1, 2020 start date.


The State of Wisconsin EHH grant combines HUD Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), State of Wisconsin Housing Assistance Program (HAP) and Homeless Prevention Program (HPP) and supports various aspects of homeless services in Madison and Dane County, including emergency shelter, street outreach, homeless prevention, and rapid rehousing and other housing programs.


The State Department of Administration Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (“the State”) annually distributes available funds among four Wisconsin Continua of Care (CoC): Dane, Milwaukee, Racine, and Balance of State CoCs. The estimated funding amount for Dane CoC for 2020-2021 grant year is $650,000.


The City of Madison Community Development Division serves as the Dane CoC’s lead applicant and submits, on its behalf, an annual consolidated application to the State. The Dane CoC Board of Directors is responsible for making funding allocation decisions for inclusion in the consolidated application. Following the notice of award, the City will enter into contracts with the nonprofit agencies to provide the activities approved by the Dane CoC Board of Directors.
