is a correspondence from PHLF’s Eugene Matta to the nine Beaver
I have put in the mail to each Municipality the following
1 - Letter with the current status and information on
requirements to complete the Single Application;
2 - Pgs. 43, 44, and 45 of the DCED New Communities, Program
Guidelines, for Residential Reinvestment Grants;
3 - A copy of the Elm Street Plan for each of the nine
Municipalities, prepared by Town Center Associates with the
collaboration of The Beaver County Community Development Plan.
As you may be aware, originally I was asked to prepare one
consolidated Single Application for all nine Municipalities.
That did not work, and it was not until recently that DCED's Ed
Geiger, in consultation with his staff, decided that the proper
way of doing this was to prepare nine different Single
Applications, one for each Municipality. In my letter to you I
cite Mr. Geiger's comment and the requirements that each Single
Application must include.
The Program Guidelines I included in the package include the
specific requirements, and the Elm Street Plan for each
Municipality contain all the information needed to meet those
requirements. You need, however, review the Elm Street Plans and
update any information as needed.
I'll be happy to assist you in putting this information
together, and once we have all we need I'll prepare the nine
Single Applications. Although PA State still has no budget, and
many predict cuts that may or may not affect Elm Street and Main
Street programs, I think we should be prepared just in case. And
if not this year, given the budget foes, maybe next or the
