Message from Congressman Jamaal Bowman: Dear neighbor,  In response to Hurricane Ida, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is able to provide federal relief to individuals, households, businesses, schools, non-profits, and localities in our district. This assistance was made possible by President Biden’s approval of Governor Hochul’s request for a Major Disaster Declaration, something my office strongly supported. I am inviting you to join me for a Virtual Town Hall on FEMA and Local Resources this coming Tuesday, September 14th at 6 p.m. ET to learn more about these resources.  I will be joined by the representatives below to discuss local resources, individual assistance, and public assistance:  Dennis Delborgo - Director of the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) for Westchester County, New York Yokarina Duarte - Director for Intergovernmental Relations, NYC Office of Emergency Management  Stephanie Dunn Ashley - American Red Cross Metro New York North To join this webinar on Tuesday, September 14th at 6:00 p.m. ET click the link below or call the number listed and provide the Webinar ID and passcode when prompted.  Link to join: https://bit.ly/NY16IdaResources  Dial-in Number:  +1 646 558 8656        Webinar ID: 815 7819 4897      Passcode: 764378 You do not need to attend the webinar to apply for assistance.

Elementary Childcare Options

Elementary Childcare Options 

Last spring, the Pelham Public Schools, in collaboration with the Town of Pelham Recreation Department, launched a survey seeking to gauge interest in additional before and after school childcare options. The survey results showed significant interest in additional programming, however based on application volume the Pelham Children’s Center and Playful Wonders/Jr. Wonder are currently able to meet these needs at their traditional sites. Should enrollments increase, additional sites will be considered.
