MTW plan 2021 2022 draft official

Posted: October 1, 2020

Brattleboro Housing Partnerships is applying to Housing and Urban Development to become a Moving to Work HUD agency.  This designation will allow more freedom to design programs, procedures and apply funding in ways that more closely meet the needs of its residents, Section 8 participants, and community.  It is designed to apply local guidelines rather than the one-size-fits-all of HUD Public Housing guidelines.  The draft application/plan will be available for review October 8, 2020 and can be accessed by going to www.brattleborohousing.org or requesting a copy by calling 802-254-6071. There will be a public hearing held virtually on November 9, 2020 at 12:00pm for comments from the public.  This hearing can be accessed by logging into: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/536515757  or by calling (Toll Free): 1 866-899-4679 and using Access Code: 536-515-757

Anyone needing an accommodation to view the draft or participate in the public hearing should contact Christine Hazzard, E.D., at 802-254-6071.

Brattleboro Fire Department

It is important that I ask that you all think about fire safety every day. In just this short amount of time in 2022 there has been 126 civilian fire related deaths in this country. Most recently we responded to a fire in Keene, NH at a bar, where there is a video that has been posted on social media showing patrons staying in the bar that’s on fire with a smoke condition and the fire alarm sounding. I cannot stress enough that smoke/carbon monoxide detectors save lives, and when a fire alarm sounds you need to exit the building. Fire can develop in a room and that room can become completely involved in 3-5 minutes. Please practice fire safety in your home, work place, or where ever you may be attending a function. You are not only protecting yourselves, but you are protecting the emergency responders as well. You are always welcomed to reach out to the fire department with questions or assistance with practicing fire safety. Stay safe, Leonard Howard III Fire Chief
