Emergency Shelter Grant Program; Request for Applications

[27 Pa.B. 322]

   The Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has been invited to apply for funding through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

   The Emergency Shelter Grant Program is established within subtitle B of title IV of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 11371--11378). The program authorizes grants for the rehabilitation or conversion of buildings for use as emergency shelters for the homeless, for the payment of certain operating expenses and essential services in connection with emergency shelters for the homeless and for homeless prevention activities. The program is designed to be the first step in a continuum of assistance to enable homeless individuals and families to move toward independent living as well as to prevent homelessness.

   Applications may be submitted to the Department by local governments on behalf of homeless service providers through February 28, 1997. Application forms and instructions may be obtained by contacting the Department's regional offices or the main office in Harrisburg. Persons with a disability who wish to submit an application in accordance with the provisions stated herein and who require assistance with that application and persons who require copies of this notice in an alternate format (large type, braille, and the like) should contact David Chittister, Room 358 Forum Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120, telephone (717) 787-5327 to discuss how the Department may best accommodate their needs.
