DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) — The final round of applications for Davenport’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program is underway, aimed at sprucing up about 40 homes.

The eligible project area extends from Bridge Avenue to Fairmount Street.

“The pitch I would do is, you know, if you need your whole house repainted, or if you need new siding, or a certain number of windows, a porch,” Bruce said. Berger, director of community and economic development for the city. of Davenport. “It’s high-scoring stuff that really has appeal.”

The DREAM Project has $900,000 in municipal and federal funds to offer those who apply. Funding comes from grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as city funds for capital improvement projects.

The city is working with homeowners to nail down the projects, with a cap of $20,000 per home.

“A lot of the time it’s about figuring out what things your home needs,” Berger said. “What are the things that fit the program, then get bids on those, come up with work plans.”

Nadia is a Davenport resident who is one of more than 130 people who have completed a DREAM project.

“I think it’s a really fantastic program, because it’s not income-based,” Nadia said. “So it was really helping people who, you know, are struggling to get by and just need that bit of help to recover from maintaining their properties.”

Her DREAM project has her house re-clad and windows redone. She says she worked with the city to choose colors and patterns that maintain the “integrity” of the house. The neighbors took note.

“A domino effect. Absolutely,” Nadia said. “My neighbour, she applied last year after I told her I got her. And then two neighbors across the way. They also applied and are hoping to make it and so it will have such an impact in this small area to make all those homes look refreshed and new.

It is important to note that the DREAM program can take some time, with COVID and supply chain issues, Nadia’s project took about two years from the time she submitted her application.

The city says it expects the final round of projects to start in 2023.

You can find a map of the eligible area and a link to applications, as well as more information, at the city ​​website here. You can apply until June 3.

There is no set date for the return of the rebate program offering Denver residents $400 to purchase an e-bike after the city paused because it reached capacity.

What is happening: Denver Climate Action Office says instant rebate program reached capacity on May 11, exceeding city expectations. The program was launched on Earth Day, April 22.

  • The city received 3,250 requests for e-bike rebates.
  • At least 40% of applications were income-based, which means these applicants can get more money – up to $1,200.

Climate Action Office Spokeswoman Winna MacLaren told Axios Denver that the city will know how many discounts have been used by mid-July, which is also the deadline for using credits.

The app The pause does not affect people who have already applied, according to the city.

  • Denver residents who received a coupon will be able to use the funds at multiple bike shops in the metro area.
  • Once enough rebates have been redeemed, the city will reach out to see how people are using their new e-bikes, MacLaren said.
  • This feedback will help the city determine if the program has reduced car trips, which can provide estimates of emission reductions.
  • MacLaren said the city will partner with organizations to offer incentives encouraging people to ride their bikes more often.

Background: The e-bike rebate program is part of the city’s five-year plan to fight climate change. It’s one of many options that give people money to make their lives and homes more environmentally friendly.

  • The city also offers home energy rebates for those interested in installing heat pumps, water heaters and electric vehicle chargers.

Be smart: You can register online for updates on when e-bike rebate claims will be available again.

ST. PAUL — Homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgages and other living expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic are in luck.

The Minnesota Housing Commission has launched a program for homeowners who have experienced financial hardship and fallen behind on mortgage payments due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program,

HomeHelpMN

began on May 17, 2022 and will have an open application period until June 17, 2022 for eligible individuals.

“This is not a program for procrastinators, now is the time to apply,” Minnesota Housing Commissioner Jennifer Ho said of the application period timeline.

For those requesting HomeHelpMN, the Minnesota Housing Commission will act as a third-party mediator between homeowners and mortgage lenders to ensure that outstanding mortgage payments and housing expenses are paid.

Those who are eligible to apply for this program must have an income at or below 100% of the area median income based on the county in which they live. Applicants who receive assistance from this program may receive up to $35,000 to pay overdue expenses which would be reimbursed directly to mortgage lenders. Housing commission assistance will not have to be repaid by applicants.

Applicants should be sure that when applying, all outstanding expenses are dated January 21, 2020 or later. There are two main qualified financial hardships that the Housing Commission focuses on when it comes to rewarding applicants; reduction in income since January 21, 2020 and increase in living expenses from the same date.

The program is funded by Congress and the US Department of Treasury Homeowner Assistance Fund. HomeHelpMN has a total budget of $109 million to help homeowners.

“We anticipate a high need for assistance,” Ho said. “We expect the number of applicants requiring assistance to exceed the total amount of funds available to us. That’s why we encourage you to spread the word so landlords can apply as soon as possible.

A call center has been set up by the Housing Commission for applicants to reach anytime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Interpreters are also available for anyone applying by phone or online for Hmong, Somali and Spanish speakers. All applicants will be required to provide proof of ownership, photo ID, income documentation, and supporting documents to show where financial assistance is required.

The Housing Commission plans to award applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for submitting applications is June 17, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.

Amtrak’s Last Southbound Floridian departs Nashville, Tennessee, October 6, 1979. Portions of the long-distance train route have since been abandoned, but restoration of service to Nashville may proceed favorably under new corridor development criteria announced by the Federal Railroad Administration . (Bob Johnson)

WASHINGTON — Last week, the Federal Railroad Administration met a deadline set by lawmakers to establish a $1.8 billion Corridor Identification and Development Program, characterized by the agency as “a formal framework to guide the future development of intercity passenger rail transport throughout the country”.

However, additional details of the request must be released before it is possible to formally request federal financial support for the bipartisan infrastructure act.

The program seeks to identify routes with financial support

The document published in the Federal Register, available hereemphasizes that the program is only intended to identify – not build – routes sponsored by an entity willing to provide at least 20% matching to obtain federal funding.

Weed covered railway track with rusty rails leading into woods
The old abandoned Seaboard track in Norlina, North Carolina, seen in 2007, is on the road from Richmond, Virginia to Raleigh, North Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia attempted to rehabilitate. The route could be a prime candidate for corridor investment. (Bob Johnson)

The process begins with online “Expressions of Interest” by “Eligible Entities” for federal regulations website. These comments can be viewed publicly. But the agency does not plan to release “detailed information on the procedures and background of the Corridor ID program” and “a notice requesting proposals for participation” until the last quarter of 2022.

Entities eligible to express interest vary widely and include:

—Amtrak;

— Regional passenger railway authorities;

— States, groups of States, inter-State pacts, political subdivisions of a State and land-use planning bodies;

— federally recognized Indian tribes;

— Other public entities, as determined by the Secretary of Transportation.

Eligible routes apparently only exclude those over 750 miles long never operated by Amtrak. Are included :

— New or improved routes of less than 750 miles;

— Any Amtrak route that has already been closed;

— Increase in the frequency of service of a long-distance intercity passenger rail line.

The selection criteria include 14 elements

Masked people waiting for the train

The Transportation Secretary “must take into account” 14 factors when deciding which routes the agency will continue to explore, the document says. But it does not rank the importance of each, except presumably that entities offering more substantial local correspondence will be considered more favorably. Of the 14:

— Identification in regional or national railway plans;

— Projected needs in terms of traffic, revenues and financing;

— Competitiveness of journey times with other modes of transport;

— Non-federal funding committed or planned for capital assets and operations;

— Benefits for rural communities;

— Connection of at least two of the 100 most populated metropolitan areas;

— Interest shown by a passenger rail operator.

Once routes are selected, the FRA will work with entities to create a service development plan, with timelines based on the capital investments needed to ensure a route’s viability. But scoping is only the first step in qualifying a finite slate of projects for the $36 billion available over five years under the federal-state partnership category of the bipartisan infrastructure act.

The FRA says it intends the program to become “the primary vehicle for directing federal financial support and technical assistance toward the development of proposals for new or improved intercity passenger rail service in the United States,” but notes, “it will only encompass pre-construction development of selected corridors – which may include planning, environmental review, preliminary engineering and other corridor development activities.

Analysis: disconnections and opportunities

In a corporate statement released last week, Amtrak said showing interest in FRA “is a simple, efficient and free way for states and local groups to take the first step and bring trains to more of people in their home states and across America.”

Unfortunately, the program relies on requirements for state financial support and on the demarcations between regions and long distances established in the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA).

While this framework may have served Amtrak well because it was compensated for running trains based on the costs it establishes, the traveling public suffered.

The Missouri River Runner, with additional baggage cars to meet an axle count requirement for signals, passes the closed tower that once governed train movements at Union Station in St. Louis on April 28, 2022. A second daily round trip on the route was abandoned due to insufficient public funding. (Bob Johnson)

Because state support is only committed for each budget cycle, and therefore subject to political considerations at the time, states like Indiana and Missouri have withdrawn funding from services under 750 miles like the Hoosier State and a second Missouri River Runner round trip, respectively. Elsewhere, regional operators have insisted on reworking PRIIA cost-sharing formulas.

Meanwhile, Amtrak’s intercity network, which receives no state money, has seen investments in capacity, equipment maintenance and onboard amenities such as lounge space and catering. atrophy under the cost-cutting priorities of its current board and management.

While the document says frequency increases on long-distance routes, or resuscitation of those who have been interrupted, can be considered, this may require outside counsel. After two PRIIA Section 210 studies written by Amtrak in 2010 suggested that daily departures would improve the operational efficiency of its three-weekly service Cardinal and Limited sunsetthe company made no attempt to negotiate capital investment requirements with any of the host railways.

An intriguing possibility under the new legislation is that some states or communities could pursue the launch of a second Lake Shore Limited on a reverse schedule – a service offering service at convenient times where the train currently runs in the middle of the night – as a cost-effective way to increase frequencies. Recent efforts by Montana’s Big Sky Passenger Authority to run trains on the route of the Hiawatha North Coast, abandoned in 1979, could also get a boost [see “BNSF joins agency seeking to restore passenger service in southern Montana,” Trains News Wire, May 16, 2022]. It’s unclear whether North Dakota and Minnesota should sign on to improve the proposal.

Many “ConnectsUS” corridors that Amtrak expects to develop, whether on existing long-distance routes or not, will require a steady stream of funding long after Bipartisan Infrastructure Act funds run out.

Congestion on the Norfolk Southern Mainline through Hammond, Ind., delayed this westbound Lake Shore Limited over 3 hours on October 6, 2014. A study of a separate passenger-only route through the area found was killed due to funding issues. (Bob Johnson)

When Michigan and the FRA faced the same situation after a draft environmental impact statement offered a choice of passenger-only routes south of Lake Michigan between Porter, Ind., and Chicago, they didn’t. did not want to continue because no source of funding was apparent at the start. end of 2018. If instead a final EIA had been completed, the project would likely be “shovel ready” to receive federal funds today.

Not addressed so far: How the agency will assess the possibility of a non-Amtrak operator, when only Amtrak benefits from a federally imposed $295 million per incident liability cap.

Depending on the weighting of its selection criteria, FRA has the opportunity to take a leading position in prioritizing national corridors and networks when evaluating proposals. The undisputed leaders will be the states and operating authorities who have had the persistent foresight to secure a local match and complete the engineering plans. Those who don’t will be at a disadvantage.

Mere “expressions of interest” will not suffice.

WOOD COUNTY, W.Va. (WTAP) – Wood County Schools is offering a new program for students to get a head start in the beauty and cosmetology industry.

Officials from Wood Co. Schools, West Virginia University Parkersburg and entrepreneur Lee Rector visited all three county high schools to discuss the new pre-cosmetology program.

Classes for this program will begin in the fall of the 2022-2023 school year at Wood Co. Junior and Senior Schools.

School officials say the program is already attracting considerable interest from students at all three secondary schools.

Something Rector says he likes to see as a beautician.

“You know, it’s something I’ve been dreaming about for 15 or 20 years. Because when I was going to makeup school, there wasn’t a program like this. So, I’m very excited for the students and I’m very excited for this program and for our community that the Wood County Board of Education and WVU-P are teaming up to make this happen,” says Rector. “Because this is going to have a huge impact on the students’ lives, bringing them into the working community, keeping them in our community, and really giving them the opportunity to really have a career once they’re ready to leave high school and college.

Program classes will be held at the Wood Co. Technical Center.

And Lee’s Studio, which is owned by Rector, will be used as an internship facility.

Wood Co. Schools will accommodate 20 juniors and 20 seniors.

Application for the program will close this Friday, May 20.

As the needs of children and youth change, many social service agencies have redefined their priorities.

A program responding to these challenges in Oak Park and River Forest has announced a new name to accompany its new direction.

The Youth Engagement Program, formerly known as the Youth Intervention Program, is the renowned approach that provides free services to people ages 6-18 in the Oak Park area.

Megan Traficano is a licensed clinical social worker who grew up in Oak Park and has served as the township’s Director of Youth Services since 2019.

“The program began in 1996 to address issues such as gang activity, violent behavior and substance abuse,” Traficano said. “It is renowned because today we see more of a need for mental health services than intervention.”

Operating from the Oak Park Township offices on Oak Park Avenue, the program has an annual budget of approximately $250,000 and is funded by the nine tax agencies it serves, which include the townships of ‘Oak Park and River Forest, park districts and library districts as well as the school. Wards 90, 97 and 200.

“The Oak Park Youth Services Department was established here in 1967 to help young people and, by extension, their families,” Traficano said. “It has been a very successful program since its inception and it still is today.”

The Youth Engagement Program employs seven staff members, including Youth Engagement Manager, Jonathan Brown.

“Originally, it was an orientation program where case managers went into homes to support youth and families with issues such as gangs, violent behavior and substance abuse,” Brown said. “Since then, we have needed mental health services, like helping children get back to school after the pandemic. But some of them just need a little mentoring in areas like decision-making skills, financial literacy, and managing their family situation.

Brown and youth engagement specialists Laura Devitt and Sofia Fernandez are all studying for their LCSW certificates under the supervision of Traficano.

Devitt hails from Oak Park and brings her creativity and artistic side to the programs she oversees.

“We did a ‘Poetry and Pancakes’ program last week at the local library,” Devitt said. “Kids choose a book on poetry, read it and then they get pancakes.”

The youth engagement program can handle a maximum of 50 cases at a time, Traficano said, including up to 20 clients each for Devitt and Fernandez.

“It’s definitely not an easy task,” Fernandez said. “I’ve been doing social work for three years and it’s great to give back to the community.

Brown said 75% of their social work interactions are in remote locations such as schools, parks and homes.

“Some prefer to come here to the township offices because they don’t want to meet in the schools, especially the older students,” Traficano said. “We will provide them with lunch and play games with them just to show that we want them to have fun and see that we are ordinary people too.”

Clients receive help by first completing a referral form, available on the township’s website, where anyone can recommend a young person who may need support services. Specific needs are then assessed by a social worker who meets with the child and family at the township office, home or the person’s school.

“Every case is different,” Devitt said. “We are working with them to find the best way to handle any issues they may be having. We never want to turn someone away and will refer them to other services if necessary to ensure they get the information they need. requires.

Traficano said it is the child who guides the social worker in determining what skills and information are needed and taught.

“If we don’t know an answer, we let kids know who to ask or where to find it,” Brown said. “And that’s another social skill, learning to ask questions. They are taught to defend themselves, to go out and find the answers.

Brown said that due to the pandemic, some younger children may have missed the chance to start school in groups.

“These children are now back in the classroom and learning to be with other students for the first time,” he said.

“One of the main things kids struggle with is social skills,” Fernandez said. “It has a lot to do with the pandemic and how they can now socialize and interact a bit more. It is necessary for all age groups.

One of the recent concerns of Youth Engagement Program staff has been cyberbullying through cell phone apps.

“We knew about Snapchat,” Brown said. “But there’s a new Tik Tok phenomenon called Duet where people can stand side by side in a reaction video laughing or teasing the other person. It’s a big cyberbullying problem that we weren’t aware until we find out from the school children.

Traficano said she and her staff are constantly learning from their clients “because you never know what each generation of kids is going to be in for. We want to make sure our programs stay fresh and that we are trained and ready to work with all young people and all issues.

Its message to the community is to provide help.

“Children shouldn’t be afraid to ask us for help navigating their young lives,” Traficano said. “We’re here to help, we’re here to listen, we’re here to create a safe space.”

Utahns use Facebook to find Ukrainian refugees to sponsor under Biden scheme https://flworfound.org/utahns-use-facebook-to-find-ukrainian-refugees-to-sponsor-under-biden-scheme/ Sat, 14 May 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://flworfound.org/utahns-use-facebook-to-find-ukrainian-refugees-to-sponsor-under-biden-scheme/ Michael Atkinson and his wife have no ties to Ukraine, Russia or Eastern Europe.

Michael Atkinson and his wife have no ties to Ukraine, Russia or Eastern Europe. They never even visited the area.

But they have a finished basement apartment in their home in Herriman that a Ukrainian mother and her three children will call home in the coming weeks.

The Atkinsons are among 19,000 other people living in the United States who have applied to sponsor a Ukrainian family through the Biden administration’s Uniting for Ukraine program, which entered its third week on Monday. The Department of Homeland Security announced that more than 6,000 people had been approved and made travel arrangements, and the first wave of people admitted under the program were beginning to arrive.

Biden says the United States is ready to admit at least 100,000 Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion.

But the administration is taking a new approach to resettlement with Ukrainians, relying on the goodwill of people already legally in the United States. The sponsors – not the government – will be responsible for coordinating the resettlement and financially supporting the Ukrainian refugees.

It is the largest sponsor-based resettlement program in US history, designed to streamline the process for Ukrainians with their friends and family in the United States. But there’s nothing stopping strangers from sponsoring strangers, the approach taken by people like the Atkinsons.

The family slowly stepped out of their comfort zone, welcoming French family friends one year, then foreign students the next year.

“We acclimated to where we said, ‘We can do this,'” Atkinson said. “It’s going to be okay, it’s going to be cool and a little crazy. And it’s good.

Herriman resident Michael Atkinson shows off his basement apartment Friday, May 13, 2022. The apartment will soon be home to a Ukrainian refugee family.

How the program works

Anyone legally residing in the United States can apply to be a financial sponsor for Ukrainian refugees, including other immigrants and green card holders. The app is on the Department of Homeland Security Portal.

  • The first step is to find an eligible Ukrainian family. This includes families who fled the country after February 11 or anyone still in Ukraine.
  • Then, the sponsors complete an I-134 form, declaring their own income as well as the income of the refugee families they are supporting.
  • Sponsors will then be vetted and may be required to interview or provide additional evidence for their Form I-134.
  • Once approved, Ukrainian families will be asked to confirm personal information, provide proof of measles, polio and COVID-19 vaccinations, pass background checks and a medical exam.
  • If successful, Ukrainians are responsible for making their own travel arrangements that will take them to the United States within 90 days. They will be granted humanitarian parole, which lasts two years and creates a pathway to work authorization.

It’s what some experts, like Aden Batar, director of migration and refugee services at the Salt Lake office of Catholic Community Services, call a compromise.

Ukrainians who need an immediate route to the United States now have one. But humanitarian parolees are not eligible for social programs like food stamps or Medicaid — refugees going through traditional resettlement pathways are. Nor will they receive the same level of support from resettlement agencies like the International Rescue Committee or Catholic Community Services.

“It’s going to be tough for someone who has lost everything and witnessed all these horrible traumas of war and now they’re coming and they won’t be eligible (for social programs),” Batar said. “They’re going to need the support of resettlement agencies, which is why we’re asking the federal government and Congress to take ownership of the resources.”

For now, the program is financially dependent on sponsors, who in their Form I-134 must prove that they can provide housing or cash assistance if needed. Batar says Congress could allocate funds so that parolees are eligible for the same benefits that those with refugee status receive.

Uniting for Ukraine received 14,500 applicants in the first 10 days, according to The the wall street journalstraddling many of the 20,000 Ukrainians who attempted to enter the United States along the Mexican border.

“I don’t think it would be possible without social media”

On Tuesday, Melanie Williamson of Salt Lake City spent the afternoon applying to sponsor a family currently living in a refugee camp in Mexico City, who flew to seek asylum or humanitarian parole, but turn down now on Uniting for Ukraine.

Williamson contacted the family via Facebook.

The social media platform is a hub for sponsors connecting with refugees, with Facebook pages like North America for Ukraine hot air balloon to 1000’s of members from Ukraine, USA and Canada looking to match.

“I don’t think it would be possible without social media,” Williamson said.

Like the Atkinsons, Williamson had no prior ties to Ukraine. But when war broke out in February, she felt compelled to donate money to aid groups. Then she joined several Facebook groups and eventually found herself reaching out to strangers thousands of miles away, asking if they needed a sponsor.

“If I had space in my house, I would let people in,” she said, noting that the family won’t be living with her — they’re looking at Austin, Texas instead.

“But there is still something really rewarding about helping someone, individually. I’m just one person but I impacted one person,” she said.

Ukrainians cannot apply for humanitarian parole through the program and must instead find a sponsor to apply on their behalf. Often refugees will submit what Williamson and other sponsors have likened to an online dating profile, detailing their trip outside Ukraine and their hobbies, interests and even religious and political views.

“It’s kind of like dating,” Michael Atkinson said. “You can tell a lot about people who apply based on their posts.”

Potential sponsors also create what looks like a rental listing.

“People were posting here saying, ‘I have a house in upstate New York in the country and I’m looking to house a family. And they’ll get all these responses from Ukrainians saying, ‘Choose me, choose me,’ Atkinson said.

Scrolling through several Facebook pages, they would see messages from Ukrainian families asking for a sponsor. It wasn’t an easy process – often people didn’t respond or they realized that the family didn’t need physical accommodation. But eventually, they opened a dialogue with a young mother currently living in Turkey with her three children. In a few weeks, they will land in Salt Lake City.

Non-governmental organizations and non-profit organizations help match people in the United States with Ukrainians, such as Welcome US who will advise sponsors when there are refugees in need. Potential sponsors have also turned to the NextDoor community app to coordinate.

A future resettlement model?

Immigration experts say Uniting for Ukraine could be a model for future resettlement efforts.

“There’s always been this conversation about community sponsorship related to refugees – why don’t we have that? How would that work? And towards the end of the Obama years, there was this pattern,” said Asha Parekh, director of the Utah Office of Refugee Services.

Parekh has mixed feelings about the program. Resettlement is a long process, and getting permission to come to the United States is the first step in a multi-year journey that includes finding long-term housing, a career, health care, English learning, childcare, education and more.

Some of the guidance resettlement agencies typically provide will not be available to Ukrainians on humanitarian parole status. But she says it’s inspiring to see the outpouring of support in a system that has so far proven successful.

“This is the first time that (US Citizenship and Immigration Services) has an online application. And they’ve already approved 6,000 applications, that’s remarkable. On the one hand, yes, there are gaps in what “They do. On the other hand, they do things that they’ve never done before,” she said.

What to expect as more Ukrainians flee war

With the program relying entirely on sponsors, experts say the United States is unlikely to resettle 100,000 refugees through Uniting for Ukraine alone.

“I think it’s going to be really impossible for that number to be filled with sponsorships,” said Batar, of Catholic Community Services.

Batar thinks more people are likely to enter the United States through asylum or the traditional refugee route, which can take years.

“I think there are still people who are going to benefit from this, those who have family or friends (in the United States),” he said. “…But more people are still stranded, whether in Ukraine or neighboring countries, and don’t have relatives or people to find them sponsorship.”

In February, March and April, fewer than 550 Ukrainians were admitted to 25 US states through the country’s refugee resettlement process. Washington state admitted 164, the most in the United States – none were resettled in Utah, according to data from refugee processing center.

The Department of Homeland Security still does not know how many Ukrainians will be resettled under the refugee program. Utah likely won’t see anyone until October, Parekh said.

At least 87% of Beehive State voters support the resettlement of Ukrainian refugees, according to a Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll.

Even with the traditional resettlement process, experts say most refugees will choose to stay in neighboring countries – such as Poland, Romania or Hungary, which have collectively admitted more than 4.5 million Ukrainians – rather than to move to the United States.

“Most people prefer to stay close to home. Because ultimately their end goal is to return home when the situation allows,” said Olga Sarrado, spokesperson for the UN Refugee Agency.
