Body

BACKGROUND

 

The State of Wisconsin received two allocations of Emergency Solutions Grant Program Supplemental Funds (ESG-CV) from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) authorized through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act in 2020 and 2021 and allocated Dane County Continuum of Care (Dane CoC) a total of $3,514,765. The City of Madison, as the grant recipient, entered contracts with specific agencies approved by the Dane CoC Board of Directors (RES-20-00733 and RES-21-00199). The initial contract end date for the State ESG-CV funds was April 30, 2022. However, many Wisconsin CoCs have not been able to expend the grant and the State allowed CoCs to request a contract extension through June 30, 2022. The City of Madison made the request for extension in order to fully expend the grant, and received the State’s approval to do so. 

 

The City of Madison also received a direct allocation of $2,890,929 in ESG-CV funds from HUD and contracted with specific agencies approved by the Common Council (RES-20-00733). While HUD allows the ESG-CV funds to be expended by September 30, 2022, the City initially set the City ESG-CV contract end date to April 30, 2022, in order to keep the end date consistent with the State’s deadline. However, contracted agencies have unspent funds and requested extension through September 30, 2022 for effective use of the funds. 

 

 

The following agencies have requested the contract term extensions:

 

State of Wisconsin ESG-CV contract extension through June 30, 2022

                     Center for Community Stewardship -- Lived experience compensation

                     Porchlight --  Men’s Shelter
