[52 Pa.B. 7515]
[Saturday, December 10, 2022]

 On September 11, 2021, President Joseph Biden declared a major disaster for this Commonwealth because of the effects of Hurricane Ida from August 31, 2021, to September 5, 2021. As a result of the declaration, funding was made available through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through Pub.L. 117-43, known as the Extending Government Funding and Delivering Emergency Assistance Act, to provide disaster relief, long-term recovery, restoration of infrastructure and housing, economic revitalization and mitigation in the most impacted and distressed areas resulting from a qualifying disaster in 2020 or 2021.

 Under Pub.L. 117-43, the Commonwealth was allocated a total of $23.152 million and is required to expend at least $18,521,600 in Delaware and Montgomery Counties, which have been identified by HUD as the most impacted and distressed areas.

 The Commonwealth is required to develop an Action Plan (Action Plan) which details how the funds will be used. The Action Plan must include the criteria for eligibility, and how the use of the funds will address long-term recovery and restoration of infrastructure and housing, economic revitalization and mitigation in the most impacted and distressed areas.

 An in-person public meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Montgomery Township Community and Recreation Center, 1030 Horsham Road, Montgomeryville, PA 18936. The purpose of the meeting will be to review the Action Plan and seek public comment on the Action Plan.

 The meeting will be shortened if there is no one to testify or there is minimal response.

 Persons with disability or limited English proficiency who wish to participate in the public hearing should contact David Grey at, (717) 214-5341 or TDD at (717) 346-0308 to discuss how the Department can accommodate their requests.
