Governor Tony Evers of Wisconsin released his biennial budget proposal, which allocates $15.7 million annually to initiatives supporting people experiencing homelessness, by far the largest investment in the state’s history. Governor Evers’ proposal is based on recommendations made by Wisconsin’s Interagency Council on Homelessness and provides higher levels of funding to reflect ongoing needs. Overall, Governor Evers’ proposal includes $11.5 million in new annual spending on homelessness. These funds would provide additional funding for prevention of homelessness programs, diversion from shelter programs, shelter support, housing assistance, and case management.
