    Disaster Relief Fund

    Recently, the Sun Prairie Disaster Relief Committee was created to oversee distributions to individuals and businesses who were affected.  The Committee consists of 15 members from the Sun Prairie community including Bank of Sun Prairie President & CEO Jimmy Kauffman and Sun Prairie Mayor Paul Esser who are co-chairs of the Committee. United Way of Dane County is assisting the Committee in developing an online application and evaluating the requests. 

    All people and businesses located in the affected area needing assistance are ask to submit an application.  The application form is available on the United Way web site, UnitedWayDaneCounty.org/SunPrairieStrong

    Applications should be submitted by Friday, August 17. Likely there will be another opportunity to request assistance but it is important to identify all the needs so the funds are available later. The applications will be reviewed the week following the August 17 deadline and distributions are expected to begin by late August
