Announcements

  • Business District Support Program: The Business District Support Program website is now live and is accepting applications on a first come, first served basis. This program will provide grant funds to eligible local organizations that can activate or reactivate business districts by promoting small businesses and other economic growth activities such as programs, assistance, and events such as markets or festivals. In addition, this grant can be for existing business associations or new groups interested in exploring or starting a new business district.
  • Indigenous People's Day 2022 Tribute: Adams Outdoor Advertising is seeking art from native students for a week-long digital display in honor of indigenous nations in Wisconsin. These designs will appear at different times throughout the day and week on digital billboards in the Madison area (Sun Prairie, DeForest, Waunakee). Each design will feature an image of the artwork, the artist's name, and the title of the artwork. Submissions are due by October 1. Questions?

  • What to submit
    • Photo or JPEG file of the artwork

    • Title of artwork, if applicable
    • Open to all artistic mediums (may be cropped to fit billboard)
  • 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. A number of offices are also up for election:
    • Governor/Lieutenant Governor
    • Attorney General
    • Secretary of State
    • State Treasurer
    • U.S. Senator
    • U.S. Congressional Representative – District 2
    • State Senator – District 27
      • Voters who reside in District 27 will see this office on their ballot
    • Representative to State Assembly – Districts 46, 47, 48, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80
      • Voters who reside in each district will see that district's race on their ballot
    • Dane County Sheriff
    • Dane County Clerk of Circuit Court
    • All Dane County voters will see three referendum questions on their ballots..
  • 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. This maintenance will temporarily disable the use of credit and debit cards at nearly all City-owned parking garages and lots. We expect credit and debit card services to resume later in the morning.
