(The Center Square) – There’s another challenge to another coronavirus stimulus program that gives more benefits to non-white families in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty sent a letter to Gov. Tony Evers urging him to change the specifics of the Wisconsin Help for Homeowners program.

“Congress also authorized states to expand this program to include higher income limits, but with an important restriction. A state may expand the income eligibility up to 150% of AMI, but if a state makes that choice, then only ‘socially disadvantaged individuals’ with incomes in that higher bracket may receive a benefit,” the letter states. “The phrase ‘socially disadvantaged individuals,’ ... is defined as including only ‘Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, and Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders,’.”:snip:
