Maloney Announces Over $3.5 Million Investment by HUD for Orange County


Washington, DC — Today, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced a $3,592,530 investment by the Department of Housing and Urban Development for Orange County for Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and HOME. Both of these programs promote economic growth through housing assistance and expanding local economic projects.


“These critical investments in our community will help ensure a brighter future for all of us,” said Rep. Maloney. “CDBG and HOME allow Orange County to complete essential economic development projects that will create good paying jobs and affordable housing to boost the economy in the Hudson Valley.”


“We are appreciative that Congressman Maloney has helped obtain these much needed funds. I certainly realize how important they are when it comes to supporting ongoing efforts for community development across Orange County. I look forward to working with Congressman Maloney to serve areas throughout the County that can benefit from this funding,” said Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus.


The CDBG program provides annual grants to states and local units of government to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low-and moderate-income persons.


The HOME program helps to expand the supply of decent, affordable housing in low- and very low-income families by providing grants to states and local governments to fund housing programs that meet local needs and priorities.

I joined state officials this week in announcing the grand opening of the new $3.6 million entrance plaza at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, which includes a completely revitalized bathhouse facility and welcome area for the park's acre-size pool. The project is part of a larger initiative to rehabilitate and modernize the state park system adopted in this year's state budget, which I supported.

FDR Park provides both our local residents and visitors a wonderful Hudson Valley experience. This multi-million dollar renovation will not only add more comfort to the different activities offered here, but highlights New York's embrace of green energy initiatives, such as the solar thermal hot water supply which was installed as part of this project.

The pool can hold up to 3,500 visitors at a time and is one of the major attractions of FDR State Park. The adjacent bathhouse facility, with restrooms, showers, and changing areas, had not been modernized since its construction in 1965. READ MORE driving crackdown
Coming on the heels of a bombshell report published by the Journal News which listed portions of key Westchester thoroughfares among the most accident prone roadways in New York State, this week I secured additional funding to increase distracted-driving enforcement by Westchester County Police.

When it comes to public safety we must take a zero tolerance approach. During this year's budget negotiations I was thrilled to partner with the Westchester County Police and County Executive Astorino to secure additional state funds to further Westchester County's Accident Prevention Initiative.

In total Westchester County Police received $2.3 million in state funding which was approved this past March. This was an increase of $312,000 from Governor Cuomo's original proposal for Westchester County Police. These funds will now be used to combat distracted driving which includes talking on the phone or texting while driving. The National Safety Council estimates one out of every four accidents involves cell phone use. READ MORE
Honoring First Responders
The horrific Metro North crash in February claimed the lives of six people and injured dozens more. The selfless actions of our local first responders saved lives that cold night, and they deserve every ounce of recognition we can provide.
Recognizing Youth for Restoration
I had the pleasure of recognizing Viraj Kumar, leader of Youth for Restoration, at the Beekman Town Board meeting this week. He is leading a group of local students in restoring one of our historic landmarks, the Murphy Grist Mill. You can help the cleanup of the Mill from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, located at 138 Beekman-Poughquag Road in Beekman.
Pace University Tour
I joined Pace University Chief Operating Officer Bill McGrath for a campus tour to see rennovations that are underway and learn about how the State can better provide support to this academic and economic incubator right here in our district.
Green Chimneys Visit
I toured Green Chimneys and met with their amazing staff to hear firsthand how they serve Hudson Valley families.

YORKTOWN, NY - The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), a bipartisan think tank comprised of legislators from across the country, has named Senator Terrence Murphy to a national panel dealing with heroin and opioid abuse at a seminar in New Orleans this week.  Senator Murphy, who serves as co-chairman of the State's Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Abuse, will represent New York State along with representatives from 12 other states.  

"I am honored to have been asked to represent New York at this important conference and look forward to learning what other states are doing to tackle the growing epidemic of heroin and opioid abuse," Senator Murphy said.  "Recently we have learned this war is not solely contained in New York but is a nationwide battle that needs national attention."

Earlier this month the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention released a study which showed a dramatic rise in heroin use and overdose deaths.  From 2002-2004, over 379,000 Americans reported using heroin within a 12 month period.  According to this new report, that number has increased to 663,000 Americans, with overdose deaths nearly doubling.  Last week the Buffalo area suffered 10 opiate related overdoses in just 24 hours.  Of the ten overdoses, one man died and a woman overdosed twice causing county officials to call for immediate care of overdose victims.

"In just six months Senator Murphy has established himself as one of New York's leading advocates for intelligent and responsible solutions which are needed to combat the growing epidemic of heroin and opioid abuse," Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said.  "In large part, due to his passion and early successes related to this issue, I have asked him to represent the New York State Senate at this important conference in an effort to partner with other states and determine what we as a state need to do next in order to reduce and ultimately end this terrible scourge."
NCSL is inviting legislators to learn about and discuss state strategies to ensure patient access to responsible pain management.  Key objectives of the summit include convening key health legislators to learn more about chronic pain and responsible pain management; to give seminar participants the opportunity to ask questions of national experts on these important topics; and to identify areas of interest for legislators for further development of NCSL resources.
Founded in 1975, NCSL has provided states with tools, information and resources needed to craft legislation to address difficult problems.  NCSL's mission is to improve the quality and effectiveness of state legislatures; promote policy innovation and communication among state legislatures; and ensure state legislatures are a strong cohesive voice in the federal system.
The seminar titled, "Responsible Pain Management: Managing State Risks and Rewards," is scheduled to commence Monday July 20th through Tuesday July 21st in New Orleans.
