Announcements, press releases, press conferences, etc.

  • August is Civic Health Month, a national project from an organization called VotER, which is made up of health care providers striving to share the message that CIVIC health is critical to physical and mental health.  They strive to educate patients about how much of our health depends on various levels of government and the need for citizens to be involved. They encourage patients to register and vote using lanyards or laminated placards in exam rooms with QR codes to register. As they say, "Health is always on the ballot."  Learn more about Civic Health Month here.
  • On August 3, the CDC issued a new order extending the moratorium on evictions due to non-payment of rent for 60 days, through October 3. The Order is limited to counties with substantial or high rates of community transmission. Dane County is currently at a substantial rate of community transmission, so the extension currently applies here in Dane County.  In order to qualify for protection under the Order, you will have to have served a declaration upon your landlord attesting to a number of facts. The Tenant Resource Center has a declaration tool you can use to determine whether you are eligible and send a declaration to your landlord. You also need to apply for government assistance available to you. TRC is currently administering the Dane CORE program, which allocates federal emergency rent assistance funds, and you can apply online. Urban Triage is currently providing assistance to people in completing applications and will be administering rental assistance funds, as well, next month. That information is available at their website. There are several exceptions to the order that allow landlords to proceed with eviction for tenant misconduct or contract violations for reasons other than non-payment.
  • The Dane County Department of Human Services Immigration Affairs Office has put together some resources for undocumented people.  Visit the website to learn more.
  • The City of Madison launches Phase 1 of its new program, 20 is Plenty, on Monday, August 9. The program aims to improve safety on Madison's neighborhood streets, by lowering the speed limit on residential streets from 25 mph to 20 mph.  Read more here.
