Dear: Council Member Powers
Assembly Member Epstein
State Senator Hoylman
I am in receipt of your letter dated October 16 regarding the “financial fallout of the ongoing pandemic”.
First and foremost, I want to assure you that Beam Living will continue to work with every resident who asks for assistance.
Our team remains committed to compassionately listening to every resident’s needs while thoughtfully addressing the issues that this pandemic has brought upon so many households at Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. We encourage you to communicate to your constituents that they can, and should, enter our COVID-19 Financial Hardship Assistance Program (FHAP). We are also encouraging all residents to speak with our team so that we can continue to support them in this constantly changing environment, including offering mid-lease transfers to more affordable apartments.
All of these initiatives are in addition to our efforts throughout the pandemic to assist our residents and the broader community, including the Food Pantry operation and the mobilization of our team and volunteers to support residents who are homebound.
We appreciate your feedback and look forward to continuing this dialogue. Open and ongoing communication helps us to continue to evaluate and adapt our programs during this incredibly challenging time.
