November 2021 Stakeholder Call Series Update

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the November 24 stakeholder call will not take place. Our call series will resume on December 8.

Over the past week the federal government did not inform the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) that the public health emergency (PHE) would end on January 16, 2022. Therefore, DHS now expects the start of COVID-19 unwinding activities to be delayed until March or April 2022.

We will share more information about the end of the PHE and COVID-19 unwinding updates at the next stakeholder call on December 8.

About the stakeholder call series

The stakeholder call series provides an opportunity for our partners and stakeholders to learn about eligibility policy updates and rule changes affecting Wisconsin programs, such as FoodShare and Medicaid.
