Governor Tony Evers say the Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance program will now include the cost of internet for qualifying households. The program has already provided more than $38 million to nearly 11,000 families in the state. Evers said the past year and a half has underscored the fact that access to affordable high-speed internet is a necessity. The governor says this additional resource… “should go a long way toward helping folks remain connected, make ends meet, and bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.” To qualify, one or more people in a household has to be receiving unemployment benefits, a reduction in income or experienced other financial hardship due to the pandemic.
