Supervisor Clavin Announces Town of Hempstead
Economic Recovery Committee
$133 Million of Economic Relief Issued to the Town to Aid
Hempstead Residents Impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic
Today, Town of Hempstead Supervisor Donald X. Clavin, Jr. and the Town Board have announced the formation of an Economic Relief Advisory Committee, which will provide much-needed financial assistance for the health, safety and economic recovery for our Town’s residents. More than $133 million in recovery funding has been provided to the Town as part of the Federal Government’s COVID-19 economic stimulus package. The Advisory Committee’s diverse background and experience will ensure funding is allocated in ways that expedite the Town’s economic recovery leading to the best possible outcome for its residents.
“We are grateful for this significant level of funding that will be directly routed to our residents who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Town of Hempstead Supervisor Donald X. Clavin, Jr. “On behalf of our Town residents, we are very grateful for the leadership of Senator Schumer and our congressional delegation on the development of this crucial legislation. We are very fortunate to have Governor Cuomo’s historic leadership at this very desperate time in our state’s history. Our town government looks forward to working with the county and state governments to ensure these funds are used appropriately and efficiently to produce the greatest possible outcome for our communities.”
“The launch of the economic relief advisory committee is the first of many steps that will be taken over the next couple of months to regain economic stability for our town, its businesses and residents,” said Town of Hempstead Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby. “Quickly getting the economy back up and running is important, but the equitable distribution of these funds in addition to everyone’s safety is our foremost priority.”
The Town’s Economic Relief Advisory Committee is comprised of leaders from business, labor, education and community that include:
Joe Belluck, Founding Partner of Belluck & Fox, LLP.
John Durso, President of the Long Island Federation of Labor
Charles Fuschillo, Jr., President & CEO of Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
Margarita Grasing, Executive Director of Hispanic Brotherhood
Kevin Law, President and CEO of the Long Island Association
Mitchell Pally, Chief Executive Officer of the Long Island Builders Institute
Geoffrey Prime, Mayor of Incorporated Village of South Floral Park
Stuart Rabinowitz, President of Hofstra University
Cherice Vanderhall, Village Attorney of Hempstead Village
“The COVID-19 outbreak has affected us all. As part of the Economic Recovery Advisory Committee I am committed to doing my part to get the Hempstead community back on its feet in the wake of this pandemic,” stated committee member Kevin Law. “The multiple perspectives and backgrounds this committee has to offer will ensure the maximum potential for this funding is realized for Hempstead residents.”
“I am honored to serve on this committee as much of my career has been dedicated to implementing and offering services and resources to members of the Hempstead community and beyond,” stated committee member Margarita Grasing. “This collaborative effort will make certain that the division of funds spreads across all of Hempstead so none of our communities struggling from the economic and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are forgotten about.”
