Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program

The Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR) has allocated U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) HOME funding to support the HOME Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Program. Contracts will be awarded for a two-year period to provide rental assistance to individuals and families that have incomes at or below 60% of the County Median Income (CMI) and meet other eligibility requirements. Because the TBRA Program allows local flexibility in many program design areas, DEHCR will allow individual grantees to develop community-specific programs. Programs must comply with HOME regulations such as tenant occupancy and income requirements, unit and rent standards, and administrative performance. Participating agencies are subject to performance indicators, such as participation levels, affirmative outreach efforts and availability of suitable housing. See TBRA website: https://doa.wi.gov/Pages/LocalGovtsGrants/Tenant_Based_Rental_Assistance_Program_Program_Description.aspx

Eligibility

Governmental entities and private-not-for profit agencies located in Wisconsin are eligible to apply under this application for these funds. In addition, a non-stock, not-for-profit corporation organized under Chapter 181 or a religious society organized under Chapter 187 and housing authorities are eligible. All applicant agencies must be outside of the HOME entitlement areas and be in good standing (no unresolved monitoring findings, no outstanding required reports, no major audit finding, etc.) with the Department of Administration and DEHCR. Applicant agencies cannot be listed on the Federal System for Award Management (SAM) debarred contractor list and must be registered with the SAM system. Agencies receiving HOME TBRA funds will be subject to a monitoring process conducted by DEHCR staff at least once during the contract period.
