Important information provided by Mescalero IHS:
“When should I test if I’m a direct COVID contact?”
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínIncubation for the COVID virus ranges from 2-14 days. This means COVID is unlikely to show up on a test <2 days after being a direct contact. Average incubation time within the 2-14 day window is 5-7 days after contact, which is the best time to test. (The definition of a direct contact is that you were within 6 feet of a person with COVID for at least 15 min.)
The most accurate COVID test at this time for a contact without symptoms is a send-out, which takes a 5-6 days to get the result. Even though you may be understandably anxious about your result, if you are going to test for COVID, you should be obtaining the most accurate test you can. If you feel that you are a contact then isolate and wear a mask until you are called with your results.
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínIf you test multiple times within the incubation period (2-14 days) you may get called with a negative result with one test and then called with a positive result after. This is due to testing multiple times during the incubation period and testing too early. The accurate time to test is 5-7 days after exposure to a COVID positive person.
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínAnxiety about COVID is a very normal and common thing in this time period; if you would like to have someone to even just briefly talk to, one of our behavioral health providers would love to help (464-3827 for behavioral health front desk).
Citizen Participation Plan
The Mescalero Apache Tribe Housing Department (the “MATHD”) is required by law to have a Citizen Participation Plan which contains the MATHD’s procedures for public involvement in the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG), which will be leveraged with the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) per 24 CFR 91 Subpart B. This Citizen Participation Process Plan must be available to the public, which will be posted via Mescalero Apache Tribe’s Website and Facebook page.
II. Public Citizen Participation.
This Citizen Participation Plan provides for and encourages public participation, emphasizing involvement by low and moderate-income neighborhoods in the development of infrastructure project for professional fees, electricity, and base-course road for the Affordable Housing Development called “A’DIID’NI’KUWA”. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) expects the Mescalero Apache Tribe Housing Department (MATHD) to take whatever actions are appropriate to encourage participation of citizens, people who do not speak English, and people with disabilities.
Copies of this Citizen Participation Plan, as well as summaries of basic information about ICDBG will be made available upon request in the languages of residents who comprise a significant portion of the low- and moderate- income population. Public notices will be published and or posted in English.
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínThe MATHD is prepared to provide documents in a format accessible to persons with disabilities upon request (e.g. providing oral, electronic or large print copies for the visually impaired, and delivering copies to the homebound). In addition, any documents made available online will be formatted to be compatible with web readers for the visually impaired.
Focusing on Low- to Moderate-Income Residents. The law declares that the primary purpose of the programs covered by this Citizen Participation Plan is to improve communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and growing economic opportunities – all principally for low-to moderate-income people, particularly those living in slum and blighted areas and in areas where ICDBG funds are proposed to be used and by residents of predominantly low and moderate income communities.
III. Program Year
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínThe Program Year. A Program Year is a twelve-month period during which the MATHD administers ICDBG and IHBG programs. The program year will start on October 1 and end twelve months later on September 30 of the following calendar year.
IV. Proposed ICDBG Project
The MATHD develops an Indian Housing Plan (IHP) on a yearly basis, as required by HUD, that assesses community characteristics and needs, identifies priorities in addressing community needs, and establishes specific objectives that the MATHD intends to initiate or complete during the year.
Indian Housing Plans cover a single year, which includes projects, leverage of other resources and affordable housing activities. The proposed ICDBG project will be leveraged with the IHPs under 2020, 2021, and 2022 IHBG in the amount of $825,000 for professional fees, electricity, and base-course road infrastructure projects. The ICBDG project will provide access to infrastructure under the proposed Low-Income Housing Tax Credit project called, “A’DIID’NI’KUWA” located ½ north of Pinto Drive in Mescalero, NM.
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínThe MATHD is engaging with tenants and stakeholders to provide recommendations and comments for the proposed ICDBG application process. The procedures in this Citizen Participation Plan relate to several stages of action mentioned in law or regulation for the ICDBG project. In general, these stages or events include a Citizen Participation. The MATHD will conduct Citizen Participation through the Mescalero Apache Tribe’s Official Website and Facebook page. The purpose of the Citizen Participation is to obtain citizens’ views, and respond to proposals and questions, regarding housing and community development needs and proposed activities. All proposals and questions must be submitted in writing at least five working days prior to the Citizen Participation.
V. Technical Assistance
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínThe MATHD will provide technical assistance to organizations providing services to persons of low- and moderate-income in developing proposals for funding assistance under programs covered by the Indian Housing Plan. Hence, the Citizen Participation Plan provides an opportunity for the community to engage in the project development process as required by law under
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínAfter a Program Year is complete, an Annual Status and Evaluation Report (“ASER”) is completed and submitted to HUD as required. A copy will be provided to the general public upon request.
Đổi thẻ đổi thưởng uy tínSubstantial Amendment. On occasion during the year, it might be necessary to change the use of the money already budgeted in the proposed ICBDG application, or to change the priorities established. However, under the ICDBG grant application, the MATHD does not plan to amend proposed use of ICDBG funds other than originally proposed under the ICBDG grant application for professional fees, electricity, and base-course road project for the LIHTC project. Instead, the proposed ICBG grant funds are proposed to be 100% expended by September 28, 2021.
VII. Public Notices
Due to the current COVID-19 Epidemic, the MATHD will not risk exposure or impose liability for holding public hearings regarding the ICBDG grant application. However, all public meetings relating to the funds or planning process covered by this Citizen Participation Plan will be done using the Mescalero Apache Tribe’s Official Website and Facebook page.
