About Wisconsin Connections

Wisconsin Connections is an educational series intended to assist families wanting to connect to state and federal support programs.

The economic effects of the Great Recession continue to impact families. A number of state and federal assistance programs are available to promote family economic well-being. These programs are generally targeted to households with limited incomes to assist with child care and child support, acquiring food and health care, and home energy.
