NEWBURGH – The Regional Economic Community Action Program, which has centered on the greater Middletown area for years, is now also implementing anti-poverty programs in the City of Newburgh.
Executive Director Joseph Czajka said their programs are in place after
months of planning.
“We are looking at housing in Newburgh,” Czajka said. “We are also looking at economic development activities. For example, we have just instituted a job developer and job coach positions. That is a person that not only helps people attain employment but stays with the person once they are employed and assists the person in staying employed and they assist the company in taking care of any issues that may come up with the worker.”
RECAP, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, is also involved in the development of workforce housing.
