Baldwin worked to secure federal funds for Wisconsin in the bipartisan CARES Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today announced an additional $23,473,973 in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for the State of Wisconsin’s coordinated response to COVID-19 and the economic and housing impacts caused by it. This funding was included in the bipartisan Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was signed into law in March.
The CARES Act included $5 billion total in CDBG funding. Today’s announcement is the third round of funding to support states, cities and counties based on the prevalence and risk of COVID-19 and related economic and housing disruption. In March, Senator Baldwin announced the first round of this CARES Act funding for Wisconsin and local governments. And in May, she announced the second round of funding for the State of Wisconsin to support a coordinated coronavirus response across entitlement and non-entitlement communities.
The following cities and counties in Wisconsin will receive this final round of CDBG funding from the CARES Act:
- City of Appleton: $343,268

For more than 40 years, the CDBG program has invested billions of federal dollars in communities across the country and helped millions of Americans. The CDBG program fosters job development and provides assistance to neighborhood-based organizations, including community development corporations, in support of economic development, housing assistance, or neighborhood revitalization activities in Wisconsin that are vital to getting through this public health emergency. CDBG funding can be used for the expansion of community health facilities, child care centers, food banks and senior services.
