2022 BUDGET CALENDAR & MEETING SCHEDULE

October 1, 2021: 2022 Tentative Budget presented to Town Board


ERAP Update - Landlord Portal Now Open

OTDA has announced that $125 million in state funding is now available to help landlords that couldn't participate in the New York State Emergency Rental Assistance Program due to a federal requirement for tenants to participate in the application process.

OTDA has started accepting applications as of Oct. 7th. The Landlord Rental Assistance Program provides up to 12 months of past-due rent to landlords who are ineligible for the federally funded program because their tenants either declined to complete an application or vacated the residence with arrears. Priority will be given to those landlords owning small-to-medium-sized properties.

For the first 45 days of the program, priority is given to landlords who own a building with 20 or fewer units. After 45 days, applications for all eligible landlords will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available.

Here is link to the portal and additional information can be found here .

The Town of Chatham Is Helping You Go Solar (and save just less than 10%).

The Town Board and its Climate Smart Committee have agreed on discounted rates and cash incentives with two established community solar providers. In about two minutes, you can cut your electric costs, take advantage of renewable energy, and also get some cash in the mail.

In March 2020, the Climate Smart Committee began working with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to find a way for Chatham-area residents to take advantage of decreasing solar generation costs as well as federal and state renewable energy tax subsidies—if you cannot or do not want to install solar panels themselves. Following NYSERDA guidance, the committee interviewed several providers before settling on Delaware River Solar and Astral Power. The Solarize Chatham program is the result. You get to choose whichever company you like best. The cash incentives differ slightly between the two, but both companies offer the same discount. No matter which one you choose, each time a resident signs up, the Town receives an incentive to be used for town climate smart projects.

For more information and to sign up, visit the websites for Delaware River Solar (https://delawareriversolar.com/) and/or.Astral Power (https://www.astralpower.com/solarize-chatham/).

IMPORTANT: To receive your cash incentive and for the Town to get credit, you must type “Solarize Chatham” in the “Referred By” box for Delaware River Solar and, for Astral power check Community Partner in the "How did you hear about us" field, and type "Solarize Chatham" under "Community Partner".
