Program Description:

The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program provides rental assistance to individuals/families that are literally homeless. When an applicant is eligible, a portion of their rent will be paid through Newcap based on their income. This payment will be sent directly to the landlord the first working day of each month. The tenant will be responsible for the balance.

Rapid Re-Housing:

This program targets individuals/families who are literally homeless.  It is to assist homeless persons living on the streets or in an emergency shelter transition as quickly as possible into housing, and then to help such persons achieve stability in that housing.

When the tenant has located a unit and the owner accepts the assistance, an inspection is performed to ensure the unit is decent, safe, and sanitary under the Housing Quality Standards regulations. If the unit passes, the owner and Newcap enter into a Rental Agreement. The tenant and the landlord enter into a lease agreement.

Case Managers will conduct monthly visits at least once a month or more if needed. Monthly visits will focus on individual goals, landlord/tenant issues, employment concerns, financial management, or other goals identified through various assessments. Room-by-room inspections may be done as needed. Attendance at workshops focused on self-sufficiency may be mandated. Follow-up services will be provided to families exiting the program.

Newcap has recently been certified as a Community Development Organization and are assembling regions to apply for these development funds. 

Region 1: Marinette, Oconto and Florence counties;
Region 2: Shawano, Langlade, and Menominee counties; and
Region 3: Brown County.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring these funds to our communities in order to create jobs and improve the lives of our residents and communities.   We are even more excited that, when repaid, these funds will get used over and over again for these goals in our area!

As a CDO, Newcap’s new Project Review Committees will make loans to eligible businesses and developers.  READI applications must include both an economic development project as well as a housing project.  We plan to include a jobs training component as well.  Grantees may receive up to $1 million, as follows: $500,000 for Economic Development, $300,000 for Workforce Housing, and $200,000 for Job Training. 

CDBG funding requires that all projects must meet one of three National Objectives; however, under READI, all projects must benefit of persons of low and moderate income (LMI).

1 Economic Development Priorities under READI: facilitate economic development and job creation for low to moderate income (LMI) persons.

2 Housing Priorities under READI: rehabilitate and/or expand housing stock in rural communities to ensure housing opportunities exist for low to moderate income households.

3 Job Training Priorities under READI: provide training resources and opportunities which ensure that LMI individuals have the necessary skills for the newly created positions.

Newcap is actively seeking economic development projects that are new or are expansions of existing businesses and are seeking additional funding for your project to get across the finish line!

  • Vilas

Program Description:

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federally funded housing program that provides rental subsidies to low-income families, senior citizens, handicapped, and disabled individuals who reside in rental housing to widen housing opportunities for lower income families by assisting them in obtaining adequate (decent, safe, and sanitary) and affordable housing. This will be accomplished through the utilization of the existing housing stock and by providing rental subsidies to offset the high cost of living.

If the applicant is approved, attendance at an interview/briefing session is required. During the briefing, the tenant is issued a voucher and also given a detailed explanation of the program and their responsibilities. When a tenant has located a unit and the owner accepts the voucher, an inspection is performed to ensure the unit is decent, safe, and sanitary under the Housing Quality Standard regulations.

If the unit passes, the owner and Newcap enter into a Housing Assistance Payment Contract, stating the amount of rental assistance to be paid on behalf of the tenant. The tenant and landlord enter into a lease agreement. The first lease must be 12 months. Each participant and rental unit undergo an annual recertification process.

Section 8 Family Self-Sufficiency Program Description:

The Section 8 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is a voluntary five-year program for families with Section 8 vouchers. The program helps families become financially independent. The main goal of the program is to help families obtain good jobs and earn enough money so they do not need public cash assistance.

Under the FSS Program, low-income families are guided to opportunities for education, job training, counseling, and other forms of social service assistance, while living in assisted housing, so that they can obtain the education, employment, and the business/social skills necessary for them to become self-sufficient. An individualized plan is developed for each family, determining their goals and what kind(s) of supportive services are needed to meet them.

The housing authority and Newcap, working with other community agencies, assist the family in getting these services. A unique feature of this program is that when a family’s earned income goes up, instead of merely reducing the amount of rent assistance they receive, an amount equal to the reduction in assistance is placed in an escrow savings account for the family. If and when the family completes the program, they receive the entire amount in this escrow account, plus interest, to use as they choose. 

Application Process:

A pre-application form is completed, and families who are deemed eligible are placed on an in-house waiting list for the next available voucher. At the time assistance is offered, the applicant is sent a Tenant Information Packet, Authorization for Release of Information Form, and a list of items to send in to verify their eligibility.

Additional Program Forms:

(print and submit to Newcap Oconto office)

Eligibility Guidelines:

Family income must be at or below 50% of the County Median Income. Use our eligibility calculator to find out if you may be eligible for this program.
