We are starting a waitlist effective immediately. We ask that you please continue to submit all the required TAP application paperwork to reserve a spot on the TAP assistance waitlist.

We will follow-up with each applicant as soon as additional resources become available.

Please contact the TAP Program Coordinator by email at or call 608-267-7195 if you have any questions about the TAP program or the waitlist process.
