Public Hearing – 2020 CFA Application for Office of Community Renewal Community Development Block Grant Program Funds

PUBLIC HEARING

TOWN OF CALLICOON, SULLIVAN COUNTY

2020 CFA APPLICATION FOR OFFICE OF COMMUNITY RENEWAL

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM FUNDS

Pursuant to the requirements of the New York State Office of Community Renewal, the Town of Callicoon will conduct a public hearing to obtain the input of citizens, particularly low and moderate income persons, with regard to the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG).  The Town of Callicoon will hold a public hearing for the purpose of hearing public comments on the Town of Callicoon’s community development needs, and to discuss the possible submission of one or more Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications for the 2020 program year.

This public hearing will be held on June 8, 2020 at 7:20 PM at the Town Hall, 19 Legion Street, Jeffersonville, New York 12748.  Owing to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and the Federal, State, and County declarations of emergency, the Town Hall may not yet reopened to the public on June 8, 2020.  In that event the public can find the access information at townofcallicoon.org.

The CDBG program is administered by the New York State Office of Community Renewal (OCR) and will make available to eligible local governments approximately $40 million for the 2020 program year for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure, and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefitting low/moderate income persons.  The hearing will provide further information about the CDBG program and will allow for citizen participation in the development of any proposed grant applications and/or to provide technical assistance to develop alternate proposals.  Comments on the CDBG program or proposed project(s) will be received at this time.  The hearing is being conducted to Section 570.486, Subpart I of the CFR and in compliance with the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.

At the hearing the Town will describe types of grant assistance available from the NYS Office of Community Renewal and will seek comments and suggestions from the public as to proposed uses of Community Development Block Grant funds.   The types of activities that may be undertaken with Community Development Block Grant program funds include acquisition and disposition of real property, public facilities and improvements, clearance activities, public services, payment of non-federal share of another federal program, removal of architectural barriers, relocation, rehabilitation and preservation activities, economic development and job creating activities.

A draft application for Community Development Block Grant assistance will be reviewed.  The Town is considering submission of a 2020 CFA Public Infrastructure application in an amount not to exceed $750,000 to undertake water storage and supply improvements within the Youngsville Water District.  The proposed project will primarily benefit low and moderate income persons. 

The Town of Callicoon Town Hall is accessible to persons with disabilities.  The Town of Callicoon will make every effort to ensure that the public hearing is accessible to persons with disabilities. If special accommodations are needed for persons with disabilities, those with hearing impairments, or those in need of translation from English, those individuals should contact Town Supervisor Thomas Bose at 845-482-5390 extension 311 or by email at tocsupervisor@hvcbiz.rr.com  at least one week in advance of the hearing date to allow for necessary arrangements.

Written comments may also be submitted Thomas Bose, Town Supervisor, Town Hall, 19 Legion Street, Jeffersonville, New York 12748 until June 19, 2020.

FAMILY

Dear friends and colleagues,  
I hope this note finds you well. The COVID-19 outbreak has created many challenges in our communities. I am grateful to work with partners like you to be able to offer support to local residents during this time. We wanted to share two resources with your office we think will be helpful to your constituents during this time.
One area of need we have identified, sadly, is counseling support for families who have suffered a loss due to COVID-19. Working with our Red Cross mental health, health, and spiritual care teams across New York State, we have launched a virtual Family Assistance Center. The virtual Family Assistance Center will link families to crisis counselors who will provide emotional and spiritual support, as well as information and referrals to help them navigate the challenging process they might be facing as a result of their loved one’s death. All Family Assistance Center support will be provided virtually and is completely confidential. Families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 can fill out an online intake form, and a Family Assistance Center volunteer will contact them:

English: www.redcross.org/NYSCOVIDFamilySupport Spanish: www.redcross.org/NYSCOVIDApoyoFamiliar   
Intake forms can also be filled out by a friend who thinks someone needs help, or by a government office, like yours, working on behalf of the family. Those without online capabilities may call 585-957-8187, and a volunteer will assist them with the initial intake process. The Family Assistance Center is expected to operate for as long as families will benefit from the service. A second area of need we have identified is the need to provide emotional support to all healthcare workers. Healthcare workers in all positions are facing incredible stress and trauma. Working with Dr. James Halpern, Red Cross Disaster Mental Health volunteer, we have produced a webinar to help healthcare workers, Recognizing and Managing Stress for Health Care Workers in a Public Health Emergency. Dr. Halpern is a renowned expert on mental health during disasters. He is the author of several books on the subject including, Disaster Mental Health Case Studies: Lessons Learned From Counseling in Chaos (March, 2019).
I would greatly appreciate if you could share the information on the Family Assistance Center and the healthcare workers video through your network and with your constituents and the families you serve in New York. I have attached a flyer that provides a description of the Family Assistance Center program as well as the contact information I listed above. This is the link to the video webinar for healthcare workers: https://www.youtube.com/watch? BLJhuqZc&feature=youtu.be
Thank you for all that you are doing to support New Yorkers during this time. We are all in this together and we hope this Family Assistance Center and mental health video will help provide comfort and support to families during this difficult time.
Sincerely,
Susan Rounds
Interim Regional CEO
Greater New York Region
