COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4-15)

I want to talk briefly about three items today. The first is testing, second is economic recovery, and then Safer at Home enforcement.

Testing—if you have not been tested, and you have symptoms—get tested. We have the resources readily available, and most importantly—they’re all free. You don’t need a doctor’s referral, but you do have to make an appointment.

We have testing sites all over our city and starting this Friday, we’re adding more capacity in Frayser and Hickory Hill.

Both sites are through Christ Community Health Services. The Frayser site is located at 969 Frayser Blvd. Hickory Hill is 5366 Mendenhall Mall.

These sites are in addition to what we’re already providing. To see the full list of testing sites go here.

All that to say, there is no reason you shouldn’t get tested. The resources are there and waiting to be used. Please use them.

Economic Recovery

I mentioned to you yesterday, Mayor Lee Harris and I had phone call with the Governor to discuss the road to economic recovery.

Tomorrow, we will be starting our own local economic recovery discussion. The initial group working on this will be made up of members of the Joint Task Force and members of the business community. This is a community-wide effort, and will also include they mayors of all the municipalities throughout Shelby County.

When it comes time to lift our Safer at home order (and at this point, we’re not sure when that will be) we want to be ready to get our economy moving safely again. As we work to flesh out the details, there will be more to come on this, and I will be sure to keep you informed.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4-14)

Friends,

Earlier today, Mayor Lee Harris and I had great phone call with the Governor. Yesterday, he announced his Economic Recovery Group headed up by the Commissioner of Tourism, Mark Ezell. Over the next several weeks, the group will be working closely with the Governor’s Unified Command to help navigate the bumpy road to our state’s economic recovery.

In our call today, the Governor wanted to lay out his vision for this new group and how we can work together to get Memphis and Shelby County back to work on our own timeline and in a way that is safe and works best for our citizens.

Federal Stimulus

As this update goes out to you today, our team was preparing all the necessary paperwork to make sure the City of Memphis get its fair share of the recently passed federal stimulus dollars that will be coming to the state of Tennessee. It’s estimated that the State will be receive over $2 billion in relief funds, and I wanted you to know we’re going to do everything we can to ensure as much of that money as possible comes to Memphis. I will keep you informed as we move through the process.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/13)

As we all know, the impacts of COVID-19 have been felt by everyone, but our small businesses have been hit hardest by this pandemic. To help ease the burden, we have the created two micro-loan programs intended to assist Memphis businesses experiencing hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with an assistance grant program being developed by the Economic Development & Growth Engine of Memphis & Shelby County, this programming is intended to serve wide range of businesses with assistance for working capital like rent, payroll, and vendor payments.

The City’s Division of Housing & Community Development and Office of Business Diversity & Compliance are partnering on the Small Business Resiliency (SBR) loan fund, which will offer loans from $5,000 to $35,000 and will delay repayment for 90 days. Applicants must show proof of being denied by the Small Business Administration or an SBA lender. They must be located within a distressed community within Memphis, be in business for at least three years, and must be certified with the City’s Office of Business Diversity & Compliance.

The funds for the program are from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.

The Economic Hardship Emergency (EHE) loan fund will offer loans from $2,000 to $5,000 and no interest for six months.

Businesses and their owners must be located within the City of Memphis, have less than $1 million in annual revenue, be in business for at least three years, and be certified with the OBDC.

The EDGE grant program, Neighborhood Emergency Economic Development (NEED) is subject to approval by the EDGE Board of Directors, which will meet electronically this Wednesday.

The NEED program would offer between $5,000 and $10,000 to businesses that remain open with a 25 percent or greater reduction in revenue and a plan for 90 days of continuous future operation, and $5,000 for businesses that are temporarily closed due to the pandemic but have a plan for reopening within 90 days and staying open for 90 additional days.

NEED recipients must be located within New Market Tax Credit Qualified Census Tracts, have been open before March 1, 2019, and have revenue of less than $1 million. NEED recipients do not have to be SWMBE certified.

With these new programs, we’re hoping to help these small businesses to bridge the gap as we all work to get through this.

For more information or to get started, contact OBDC at 636-9300, or email Loan Administrator Jerry Brack at jerry.brack@memphistn.gov.  Applications will open Tuesday for the EHE loan fund, and by early May for the SBR fund. There are no fees to apply.

For more information about the NEED program, call 901.341.2110 or email NEED@Growth-Engine.org.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/9)

In their March 24th meeting, the City Council approved a $2 million budget amendment to help our community in the fight against COVID-19. Because of their passage of the amendment, so far City government has been able to contribute $50,000 to the Mid-South Food Bank and ensure families and people in need have meals to eat. We’ve contributed $100,000 for homeless sheltering and $150,000 for drive-thru testing with Shelby County and an anonymous donor agreeing to match funds in these two areas.

I just wanted to take a second and publicly thank our members of the City Council for their leadership and for allowing us to put this money to good use during a very difficult time in our community.

I mentioned earlier in the week the efforts the Joint Task Force is making in regard to feeding our elderly, our school children, and families. We’re now providing 60,000 meals per day and growing.

When there is need, Memphians step up.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/8)

Easter and Passover are two of the largest religious holidays in the world. They serve as a reminder that during the darkest of times we have been delivered from darkness into the light—a reminder of hope instead of despair.

Considering this, I strongly encourage our religious leaders in Memphis and Shelby County to remain vigilant and provide services only through livestreaming. 

I know it doesn’t feel like it, but it’s the right thing to do to protect our citizens and your congregation. This Easter, and this Passover, we must come together by staying apart.

More Testing

We’ve been working extremely hard to grow the number of testing sites throughout the city, and I’m happy to report that it is going to drastically increase.

Thanks to all our partners for creating more testing sites- Church Health, Memphis Health Center, Tri State Community Health Center, Case Management Inc. Thanks also to Christ Community Health Services and UT Health Science Center at Tiger Lane for expanding their capacity. With these new sites, we hope to add 1,000 tests per day in addition to what we were already performing.

For a full listing of test sites and hours of operation go here.

Memphians helping Memphians

I mentioned earlier in the week that we’re working on a widespread effort to share our message.

We have partnered with Vaco, Memphis Tourism, Metropolitan Memphis Hotel & Lodging Association, Memphis Housing Authority, and the Memphis Restaurant association.

Through Vaco and a grant from the Mid-South COVID-19 Regional Response Fund, we have set up a call center that will provide temporary employment for members of the restaurant and tourism industries to call on Memphis Housing Authority residents. These phone calls will be made to check on the health and status of MHA residents, as well as, reinforcing the message to stay home and practice CDC recommendations.

The call center will be fully operational this Friday.

Safer at Home Enforcement

We are taking every measure possible to enforce the full measure of the law for those who refuse to comply with the Stay at Home Order.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/7)

During times of uncertainty, it is important to step in, do our part, and help where we can. I’m aware by issuing our Safer at Home Order and further extending it, we are making a difficult situation more complex to handle for those individuals already struggling to get by.

But, our COVID-19 Task Force is working hard to make sure that our elderly community, families and children in need don’t have to worry about finding their next meal.

Last week, we served 8,725 households in need of food. Yesterday, YMCA served 8,500 meals to Shelby County students, and three Mid-South Food Bank mobile pantries served 1,050 households. In addition, 559 registered seniors picked up meals, and another 1,146 registered seniors had meals delivered all through MIFA yesterday.

My heartfelt thanks go out to the hundreds of volunteers and donors who make this happen. We would not be able to do it without you.

Code Enforcement

With the extension of our Safer at Home Order, I just wanted to give you a quick update on the numbers of complaints and where we stand with compliance. To file a complaint against a business or person not in compliance with the Safer at Home Order, call 311.

Solid Waste Service Delivery Modification

To enhance the safety of our solid waste employees, effective immediately, out of the cart service is suspended with the exception of yard waste. 

All household waste must be placed in a cart for collection.  If you are in need of an additional garbage cart, one can may be leased for $10 per month. Call 311 to obtain a cart.

Also as a added safety measure, any COVID-19 contaminated waste should be double bagged.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (4/6)

What we do today will determine what the surge will be like when it hits. By practicing social distancing today, it provides the best guarantee that we will be safe from coronavirus tomorrow. The virus feeds on our social interactions. We need to starve the virus. So, now is the time for all of us to double down on our actions.

To help with that, we will be extending our Safer at home order through April 21st.

Over the last several days, we’ve received many questions about our homeless population. I want you to know they are top of mind and here’s what we’re doing:

  • Coordinating with a number of agencies in order to ensure that homeless individuals and families are able to shelter in place.  The agencies include Shelby County Government, MIFA, Community Alliance for the Homeless, Hospitality HUB, and many others.
  • Secured two hotels with a total of 60 rooms for the next 30 days, which will serve single women and homeless families. 
  • Currently working to secure additional hotel rooms to support homeless men in partnership with Hospitality Hub, MIFA and Union Mission.
  • Currently collaborating with Health Dept and other healthcare agencies to identify a strategy for mobile COVID19 testing, in the case that there is a need.

So many Memphians are coming together to help one another.

In a widespread effort to share our message, we have partnered with Vaco, Memphis Tourism, Metropolitan Memphis Hotel & Lodging Association, Memphis Housing Authority, and the Memphis Restaurant association. Through Vaco and a grant from the Community Foundation, we are in the process of setting up a call center that will temporarily employ members of the restaurant and tourism industries to call on Memphis Housing Authority residents. These phone calls will be made to check on the health and status of MHA residents, as well as, reinforcing the message to stay home and practice CDC recommendations. We hope to have the call center fully operational in the next week.

Mid-South COVID-19 Regional Response Fund

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been urging individuals, businesses, and foundations to make contributions to the Mid-South COVID-19 Regional Response Fund at the Community Foundation. To date, individual, corporate, and foundation donors have contributed $1,536,518 to the fund and $821,000 has been deployed to help worthy organizations.
