In response to the COVID-19 crisis, University Housing staff have been working on a rent relief grant for current University Apartments Residents who are students or Post Docs. (Honorary Assoc/Fellows are not considered students or Post Docs.) Each apartment with an eligible resident should submit one application as the grants are per apartment, not per resident. Eligible residents who complete an application and are approved will receive a $50/month rent relief grant for the months of July, August, and September 2020. Residents’ applications will be reviewed by University Apartments staff and approved applications will see the rent credit applied monthly to their rent accounts in July, August, and September 2020. Applications are due by June 19, 2020 and applicants will be notified within three (3) business days regarding the status of their application.
Rent relief grants are limited to one per apartment, so if an apartment has two eligible leaseholders, they should submit one application together. https://www.housing.wisc.edu/apartments/leasing/ua-rent-relief-grant-application/
If you have already submitted a rent relief grant, please do not submit another one.
