    The Franklin County CDC had the following article in their September newsletter:

    Attention Businesses affected by Tropical Storm Irene

    Many businesses were impacted by the recent flooding in the area and the Franklin County CDC and town governments have made a special loan fund available to help them clean up and rebuild.

    The Small Business Administration (SBA) has Disaster Loans available which businesses should apply for, but they might not cover everything or be timely enough. http://www.sba.gov/category/navigation-structure/loans-grants/small-business-loans/disaster-loans

    The Four Town Loan Fund, which the CDC administers for the towns of Greenfield, Shelburne, Buckland and Montague, is available immediately. This fund, plus other loan funds from the CDC has for all towns, are available for short-term bridge loans as businesses await FEMA or insurance money, or can be structured as longer-term loans to put the business in good shape for the future. For more information, contact Amy, John or Alan at 413-774-7204, or visit http://www.fccdc.org/

    The Shelburne Falls Area Business Association (SFABA) with the support of the Central Connecticut River Valley Institute (CCRVI) has also established the West County Relief fund to receive funds from the public to be used for relief from the damage caused by Hurricane Irene. Funds will be given out to individuals, families, and businesses to fill needs not met by funds from Federal, State and non-profit sources. Funds raised will be distributed by a committee established by the SFABA. http://www.shelburnefalls.com/news/headlines/50-headlines/370-west-county-relief-fund

    Donors can make donations (please make checks payable to West County Relief Fund) at any branch of the Greenfield Saving Bank, WHAI, McCusker’s Market, Mocha Maya’s, Keystone Market, and other area businesses.) Checks made out to West County Relief Fund may be mailed to CCRVI, 6 Warren Court, Shelburne Falls, MA, 01370, to the SFABA, PO Box 42, Shelburne Falls, MA, 01370.

    The Farm Service Agency also has disaster assistance programs for farms and small businesses to help them get back up and running.

    In addition to the Hilltowns farmers along the river valley also experienced flooding. I wanted to repost this e-mail from Nuestras Raices in Holyoke:

    From: Diego Angarita Horowitz
    Sent: Monday, September 12, 2011 4:10 PM
    Subject: Nuestras Raices disaster relief and Harvest Festival

    On August 26, our farm was destroyed in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. The level of the Connecticut River rose and flooded our farmer incubator site and youth garden with water potentially contaminated with e.Coli and mercury. We host 13 migrant and refugee farmers that cultivate specialty crops from the caribbean and many of their plants used for seed saving were destroyed as well.

    Our plan of action includes testing the site and pursuing disaster relief
    funds. We are also trying to fundraise $100,000 to help the farmers recoup their losses and rebuild our farm.

    We are going ahead with our annual Harvest Festival scheduled for September 24th from noon-4pm. While we are committed to providing this free event to the community we are using it as an opportunity to raise funds to rebuild the farm. I am asking if you could possibly:

    1.) make a tax deductible donation to Nuestras Raices attn: Farm Relief 329 Main St Holyoke MA 01040
    2.) sponsor our Harvest Festival by tabling for your organization (contact: Ramiro Davaro rdavaro @ neustras-raices .org)
    3.) spread the word to your list serves about our need
    4.) volunteer the day of the festival

    In any case your presence at our Harvest Festival would be much appreciated just as a patron to enjoy the day with us after such a trying few weeks.

    For more information you can call me directly at 413-535-1789 ext. 3

    Thanks for your support in advance.

    Patrick-Murray Administration Announces Disaster Unemployment Assistance

    Individuals in Berkshire and Franklin Counties May be Eligible for Unemployment Insurance Benefits

    September 6, 2011 – The Patrick-Murray Administration announced today that Federal Disaster Unemployment Assistance benefits are available to help those left jobless as a result of damage and flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene. On September 3, 2011, President Obama declared Massachusetts a federal disaster area, making the state eligible for federal disaster aid to supplement recovery efforts in the areas struck by the tropical storm.

    The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) declared Berkshire and Franklin Counties as official disaster areas and under that declaration, individuals living, working, or scheduled to work in those counties may be eligible for disaster unemployment assistance benefits.

    An individual must be continuously unemployed as a direct result of the tropical storm in order to continue receiving Disaster Unemployment Assistance and, if eligible, he or she can collect benefits for the weeks during which they fulfilled the necessary criteria. Workers who experienced temporary job loss as a direct result of the disaster and who do not qualify for state Unemployment Insurance Benefits, such as self-employed individuals, may be eligible for Disaster Unemployment Assistance.

    The disaster assistance period began on August 28, 2011 and ends the week ending March 3, 2012, and the filing deadline for individuals eligible for assistance is October 6, 2011. Please note that benefits received under Disaster Unemployment Assistance do not impact employers’ experience rate. The first payable week will be the week ending September 3, 2011. An individual must be continuously unemployed as a direct result of the disaster in order to continue receiving Disaster Unemployment Assistance and, if eligible, he or she can collect benefits for the weeks during which they fulfilled the necessary criteria. Workers who experienced temporary job loss as a direct result of the tropical storm and who do not qualify for state Unemployment Insurance Benefits, such as self-employed individuals, may be eligible for Disaster Unemployment Assistance.

    “We are grateful to President Obama for swift action to aid the Massachusetts communities impacted by Tropical Storm Irene,” said Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Joanne F. Goldstein. “Relief for eligible individuals is available through Disaster Unemployment Assistance. It’s important that people who are eligible access these funds as soon as possible.”

    Examples of reasons for unemployment that may make a person eligible to receive Disaster Unemployment Assistance:

    • You were injured in the disaster and are unable to work, whether you are an employee or self- employed.
    • Your workplace was damaged or destroyed; or you can’t work because of the disaster.
    • Your transportation to work is not available because of the disaster.
    • You cannot get to your job because you must travel through the area affected by the disaster.
    • You were about to begin working, but could not because of the disaster.
    • You derived most of your income from areas affected by the disaster, whether you worked for yourself or for an employer, and your business is down as a direct result of the disaster.

    Please note: this list is not exhaustive and if you are uncertain as to your eligibility, you are encouraged to apply. All applicants will be required to submit wage information and documentation regarding the basis of your claim. Any impacted individuals may file a claim for unemployment benefits due to Tropical Storm Irene. All claims must be filed by October 6, 2011. Please call the Department of Unemployment Assistance at 1-877-232-6200 if you are an unemployed worker or self-employed individual who lived, worked, or was scheduled to work in the area impacted by the tropical storm.

    Cleaning up ? Rebuilding? Repairing?

    Read this: http://www.mass.gov/Eeops/docs/mema/news_and_updates/2011/Next_Steps_Following_Hurricane_Irene.pdf

    Key points:
    * If your home has been damaged by the Hurricane you will need to contact your insurance company. Rain from above, or water damage from below may be treated differently.

    * Consumers with insurance concerns should contact the Division of Insurance at (888) 563-4467 or (617) 521-7794.

    Dear Mohawk, Hawlemont and Rowe School Communities:

    OPENING OF SCHOOL
    Outstanding news! Despite the extraordinary circumstances and many uncertainties, we are on track to open school the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, September 6th.

    TRANSPORTATION
    Several bus drivers conducted a test run yesterday to assess the condition of the roads and develop revised bus routes. Excellent news- it appears that all of our students will have access to bussing, which I believe will eliminate any need to involve the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in our start of school plans. Some of the bus stops will not be accessible until the roads are repaired, so some parents will need to identify the nearest alternate bus stop and make arrangements to transport their children to those stops. Please see the attached revised bus schedule, which will also be available on http://www.MohawkSchools.org. As the roads are repaired over the coming weeks/months, closed bus stops will be re-opened.

    BUCKLAND-SHELBURNE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
    More good news- the water crisis in Shelburne has been averted. Repairs were made to the system and the water passed a test for potability (suitable for drinking). As a result, BSE will open on Tuesday and host Hawlemont until its school is repaired, which could be several weeks or more. While there may be some sharing of resources, BSE and Hawlemont classes will not be blended; essentially, the two schools will operate independently within the same building. Principals Giguere and Svoboda have sorted out most of the logistics and will make adjustments as needed once the school year begins.

    MOHAWK MIDDLE SCHOOL – HIGH SCHOOL
    It appears that the Massachusetts Army National Guard is wrapping-up its emergency operations and will move out of Mohawk by Friday. While the District has been prepared to support the Guard indefinitely, this timing will work very well for the students. There will be no need to contingency plan a sharing of the building; Mohawk will be back to normal just in time for the first day of school. We are grateful for the emergency assistance provided by the Guard. It is my intention to find an appropriate way to say thank you to the troops, which I hope can be led by the students.

    HAWLEMONT
    It is going to take some time to restore Hawlemont to a condition safe for students and staff. Despite the removal of many tanker trucks of water, seepage continues to flow into the boiler room. Building repair and restoration efforts cannot begin until the seepage stops. The mud/sludge covering the outdoor grounds needs to be addressed as well. While this process may take some time, it is important to note that the students will have a very good home within BSE, which has enough classrooms available to support all of Hawlemont. Bussing has been arranged to transport the students from Hawlemont to BSE; Principal Svoboda will provide logistical details to the Hawlemont families.

    COLRAIN CENTRAL
    The number of folks using Colrain as a shelter has dropped to one person. Arrangements are being made to relocate the shelter, so the building will be back to normal in time for the start of school.

    SANDERSON ACADEMY – HEATH ELEMENTARY – ROWE SCHOOL
    Nothing significant to report. We anticipate a smooth opening next Tuesday.

    Sincerely,
