Bipartisan Group Unveils Plan to Tackle Homelessness in Wisconsin

Local News

A 30-page plan aimed at dealing with homelessness in Wisconsin has been created by a bipartisan coalition and is being led by Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch.

The plan is reportedly a “Housing First” model, which would put homeless people in permanent housing. The strategy has already been adopted by the City of Madison and United Way of Dane County. Although the plan may not be enough to stop homelessness in the state, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch say it’s an important first step.

The plan — which is titled “A Hand and A Home: Foundations for Success” — is projected to cost $3.5 million.
