PUBLIC NOTICE: Baltimore County Announces Grant Opportunity for Community Development Programs and Holds Public Hearing



PUBLIC NOTICE:
Baltimore County Announces 
Grant Opportunity for Community Development Programs  
and Holds Public Hearing

            Baltimore County invites non-profit organizations, government agencies and the general public to a meeting to discuss upcoming funding opportunities and spending priorities for housing and community development programs. The meeting, to be led by the Department of Planning, will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, December 13, 2016, in the basement (Genesis Hall) of St. Pius Church, 6428 York Road, Baltimore, MD, 21212.
            Citizens and organizations will be asked to express their views on needs and spending priorities related to housing and community development for the coming fiscal year, 2018, during a public hearing that will begin at 10 a.m. Following the public hearing, County staff will discuss the process through which organizations may apply for grant funding. The bulk of the funding to be discussed is made available by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which allocates funding annually to Baltimore County. HUD funds include Community Development Block Grants and Emergency Solutions Grants. Additional support comes from state and County funding. The County disburses much of this funding through a competitive grant program administered by the Department of Planning.
            County staff will also invite interested citizens to learn about and consider joining the Homeless Roundtable, the County's advisory group that helps guide policy on homelessness. The Homeless Roundtable supports the County Continuum of Care and the efforts of Baltimore County government in the allocation of public funds to prevent and reduce homelessness in the County.       
          
Grant funding opportunities are targeted to:

            1.) Homeless Services – projects that prevent homelessness or assist those who are currently homeless.
            2.) Public Services – projects that address the needs of low-income citizens in the area of employment, crime prevention, child care, health and welfare, education, substance abuse, energy conservation or recreational needs.
            3.) Capital Projects – for the removal of architectural barriers for persons with disabilities.
          
Generally, one-year grants will range in size from $15,000 to $200,000. Applications are due by 2 p.m. February 7, 2017. To learn more, visit http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Agencies/planning/grants/index.html

For questions/comments, please contact Jay Doyle at jdoyle@baltimorecountymd.gov or 410-887-2483.

Mobile App to Support MAT for Opioid Use Disorder

MatX Screen on iPhone
Opioid use disorder has become an increasing concern in the United States. As part of the HHS Opioid Initiative, SAMHSA developed MATx—a free mobile app that provides immediate access to information about medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder.
MATx is a one-of-a-kind resource that will make it easier for practitioners to provide the effective, evidence-based care that their patients living with an opioid use disorder desperately need.
The app includes:
  • Information on medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of opioid use disorder and treatment approaches for practitioners
  • Clinical support tools, such as treatment guidelines, ICD-10 coding, and continuing education opportunities
  • Access to critical helplines and SAMHSA's treatment locators.
MATx is available for free download on mobile devices.
iTunes App Store Google Play
Already have MATx? Help spread the word about the app with tools on our Collaborator Tools page.

This #GivingTuesday, Make a Gift to NCHV

This #GivingTuesday, Make a Gift to NCHV
Funds raised strengthen programs, resources to end veteran homelessness
We hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend! NCHV is thankful for each of you who work in your communities to help veterans off the street and into permanent sustainable housing. We are equally thankful to each of you whose work is connected to those efforts in some way, and to those who work in other fields who simply find it unacceptable that nearly 40,000 veterans of our country's armed forces are still homeless on a given night.
Without each of you and the unique impact you have in your community, the progress made over the past six years (a 50% reduction in veteran homelessness since 2009) would not be possible. 
This year, NCHV is participating in the #GivingTuesday campaign - a day to step back from the shopping-centered holiday weekend and make a contribution to an organization that you value. To make a gift to NCHV, visit our #GivingTuesday campaign page.
Thank you for your work, and for your support throughout the year!

Malign Neglect? Urban Policy in the Trump Era

On Clinton, Obama, and the Failures of Liberal Urban Policy

Some HUD Secretary Nominees Made Sense -- But Not the One We Got
Miriam Axel-Lute, Shelterforce
Though the decision has since been made, as of last week, some of the HUD secretary possibilities were extremely ideologically conservative, but nonetheless relevant. Unfortunately, and perhaps unsurprisingly, what we got instead came from the list of candidates who were a giant flying middle finger to everything the department stands for.  More



Stop Subsidizing Bad Landlords

Banks' CRA Exams Are Public. Why Not Consumer Compliance Reviews?
Josh Silver, NCRC
Public participation is a core aspect of Community Reinvestment Act exams, which assess and rate banks' lending, investments, and services in low- and moderate-income communities. So why would a key function of regulatory agencies--assigning performance ratings to lending institutions--be hidden from public view?   More

You Said It!

People will not be surprised that I believe that vouchers should be an entitlement for everyone who cannot afford the local Fair Market Rent with 30 percent of after-tax income. How can we tolerate homelessness? Why can't hard-working middle income families find housing in high-cost areas? This article is a clear, eloquent excellent piece of work. Thanks, Mike and Ellen. --Carol Lamberg, more
