    • Where to submit
  • Dane CORE 2.0: Dane County and the City of Madison were notified this week that their requests for additional emergency rental assistance funds have been approved. That means more federal funds will soon be available to continue the Dane CORE 2.0 program. The Dane CORE 2.0 application portal, which temporarily closed on September 15, will re-open at 12:00 am CST on Wednesday, October 5, for persons interested in submitting new applications and additional funding requests (AFR's). Applications received prior to the September 15 pause will continue to be processed without interruption, and eligible claims will be paid. It is not necessary to resubmit those applications when the portal re-opens. Anyone wishing to review the status of an application that has already been submitted to see if there are any open tasks and that all information is up to date should log into Neighborly. Please note that the program changes described in our previous message will go into effect for any applications submitted after the portal re-opens. These changes are designed to reserve funds for those households facing the greatest economic hardships. They include the following:
    • Program benefits will be available only to those with household incomes at or below 50% of the County Median Income. (Previously, the income threshold was 80% of County Median Income).
    • The program will provide assistance only for past-due (unpaid) rents.
    • Only arrears accrued since July 1, 2021 will be eligible.
    • Assistance will not be available for forward/future rent payments unless paired with security deposit assistance.
  • General election is November 8: The general election is coming up on November 8, and voters can view a sample ballot for their address on the MyVote Wisconsin website.  Voters who reside in the Sun Prairie, Waunakee, Middleton/Cross Plains, or Verona Area School Districts will also see school district referendum questions on their ballot.

  • Streets Division update: Residents get three curbside collection opportunities in the fall - Yard waste and leaves can be placed on the terrace, which is the grassy space between the sidewalk and the curb. If no terrace is available, it can be placed at the road edge or in the driveway apron. Click here for more information.
  • Absentee ballots are in the mail: Voters are encouraged to ensure their absentee ballot certificate envelope is sealed and complete before returning it to the City Clerk's Office. A complete absentee certificate envelope will include voter signature, witness signature and witness address.
  • Credit card outages in City parking garages and lots: The Parking Division anticipates intermittent credit card processing outages due to network maintenance beginning at 7am on Saturday, September 24.
