Evers Allocates $32 Million In CARES Act Funding To UW System

Governor Tony Evers has allocated $32 million dollars, for the University of Wisconsin System to deal with the coronavirus on its campuses this fall. The money comes from Wisconsin’s share of federal CARES Act funds. About $24 million will help campuses test students living in residence halls, symptomatic students and students who have come into contact with symptomatic students. The money will also help pay for personal protective equipment, with roughly 8-point-3 million to be used for equipment and testing on the Madison campus.
