Deadlines for WIA Weekly Reports

As a reminder, the regular deadline for WIA Weekly cash draw requests is 4:30 pm on Thursday afternoons. We have received a number of late requests in recent weeks. Unless the CORe processing staff is notified before the deadline, and confirms that a late request can be accommodated, any late submissions will be held for processing in the following week’s batch.

Monday, January 20 is a bank holiday, and US Bank Milwaukee is closed. This requires DWD to commence the ACH process 24 hours earlier than usual in order to get funds into recipient accounts on Tuesday, January 21. For this reason, all cash requests for the week of January 13 are due in the DWD Finance Grants inbox absolutely no later than 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15. Any requests received after that time will be held for the following week’s payment cycle. Please update your calendars now with this information.
