Church Unemployment Pay Program (CUPP)

The Church Unemployment Pay Program (CUPP) was developed to assist Wisconsin parishes, schools, and other church employers meet their social justice responsibilities by providing church-funded unemployment coverage for lay employees in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and the Dioceses of La Crosse, Madison, and Superior.

Although temporary employer closures do not fall under the administration of this Program, in this time of uncertainty, CUPP staff and its leadership join with the faithful in prayer for the healing of those affected by illness and for the protection of those who have escaped harm.
