City of Lynn Announces $2 Million in CARES Act Funding

LYNN - The US Department of Housing and Urban and Development (USDHUD) has awarded the City of Lynn $2 million in federal funding through the Coronavirus relief bill, known as the CARES Act. The funds are intended to prevent, prepare for and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds will be managed by the City’s Community Development Office through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Service Grant (ESG) programs. They will partner with the Economic Development Industrial Corporation (EDIC) and the Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development (LHAND) to administer the funding which is subject to HUD regulations including prioritization of funding for residents who have low and moderate income levels and businesses that retain or create low and moderate income jobs.

“This CARES Act funding will bring some relief to residents, businesses, and non-profits within the City so they can pay employees, leases, mortgages, rent and utility bills as they try to survive the adverse economic effects of this pandemic,” said Mayor Thomas M. McGee. “This much needed aid will also assist with caring for our most vulnerable populations, costs associated with operating regional isolation and quarantine locations, and investing in food security and distribution in our City. Certainly there is substantial more work to be done to rebuild, but this is one step in the right direction. ”

“In developing a Lynn Emergency Relief Fund proposal, the City formulated a plan based on input from local businesses, residents, and what other cities and towns nationwide are utilizing the funding for,” said Community Development Director James Marsh. “We have been working with HUD and the National Community Development Association (NCDA) over the last few weeks in formulating a plan for these much needed federal dollars. We are grateful for these funds and are hopeful more funding is on its way.”

Lynn’s EDIC and Community Development Office will administer $1 million in funding for grants of up to $10,000 to Lynn business and non-profits impacted by COVID-19. Funds for businesses will be used to keep workers employed, for property lease and mortgage payments, or other eligible costs that will assist in keeping businesses afloat throughout the pandemic. Funds for non-profits can be used to for services such as job training, providing testing, increasing the availability health services, providing equipment, supplies, and materials, or delivering meals to quarantined individuals that need to maintain social distancing due to medical vulnerabilities.

SMALL BUSINESS
The funding for businesses will be available through an On-line Grant Application posted here and at www.ediclynn.org.

NON-PROFIT
Non-profit entities interested in applying for funds should visit the Community Development website at www.cityoflynnoecd.net or call 781-586-6770.  All awards will be made based on need and adherence to HUD regulations.

“I receive calls every day from businesses owners asking what we can do to help them survive,” said EDIC Executive Director Jim Cowdell. “Our goal was to get as much direct grant funding to them as fast as possible. We want to do all we can to keep them viable through the pandemic.” 

The Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Development will administer funding designated to assisting homeowners and tenants with monthly housing expenses. 
LHAND will utilize over $535,000 in funding for eligible homeowners and tenants that have loss of income due to lack of work or loss of employment. Funds will be used to assist households with rent or mortgage payments and utility arrearages for a period of 3 months along with providing financial counseling amid the pandemic. LHAND will also create an emergency response plan to assist the organization’s continuity of operations and to help reduce the spread of disease among residence, staff, and program participants.

“Our main concern is to get these funds out as quick as possible to homeowners and tenants that have been affected and assist with their rent or mortgage,” said Charles Gaeta, LHAND Executive Director. “This pandemic is affecting everyone and people need relief. We want to help as many people as we possibly can with these additional funds.”

For tenants and homeowners that are looking for assistance, information can be accessed through the online WaitListCheck portal of the Family Success Center of LHAND at https://www.waitlistcheck.com/MA2977-1918  Information can also be obtained by calling the Family Success Center at (339) 883-2342 or fsc@lhand.org.

In addition, the City plans to utilize a portion of the funding to invest in food security operations, to defray the costs associated with isolation and quarantine locations for Lynn residents who cannot do so in their own living environment, and to assist the Lynn Shelter Association with servicing our most vulnerable populations during this heightened time of crisis.

A complete listing of proposed activities and funding allocations will be presented for further public review and comment on the City’s website, as the City undertakes the task of amending its Federal Fiscal Year 2019 HUD Action Plan and Citizens’ Participation Plan to facilitate the use of these funds.  
   
Nationally, $5 billion will be distributed through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Fund under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act signed by the president on March 27th.

Union Hospital COVID Testing

The North Shore Medical Center’s Union Campus in Lynn will serve as a testing station for those concerned about whether they’ve contracted the COVID-19 virus.

North Shore Medical Center spokesman Matthew Roy said that drive-through testing tents will be set up adjacent to the urgent care center — formerly the Union emergency room.

“We are continually evaluating the needs of our patients and the best facilities to meet those needs,” Roy said late Thursday afternoon. “This site will serve patients of the North Shore Physicians Group and other Partners Healthcare-affiliated primary care practices.”

To access testing, patients must be phone-screened, pre-registered and scheduled through their primary care physicians, Roy said. Patients will remain in their cars while they are tested.
