Community Action Committee of Lehigh Valley, CACLV, has been awarded a grant to administer over $5.6 million over a two and a half period, as part of the 2009 Stimulus package initiated by the Obama administration. Pennsylvannia was the last state to receive federal stimulus funding, and CACLV was the last agency within PA to receive federal funding. Consequently, CACLV has less time to administer/spend our allocated funds, placing tremendous pressure upon our organization to develop our program expediently and effectively. CACLV works with twelve contractors, nine HVAC firms, and seven other firms, twenty eight services in all. From program inception, Mike’s crew, Keystone/Eastern Insulation Alliance, has stood alone as our most relied upon contractor to meet our strict requirements.
Mike’s crew have been the key contributor for our ARRA weatherization efforts. We have relied upon his team early and often in developing our weatherization program. His team represents the standard that all other contractors are measured against. In fact, we relied on Mike’s team to do the work for a home that received local newspaper and local televised coverage. We were comfortable enough for Mike to serve as an example of all contractors working for CACLV.
Mike is more than simply a contractor. He has been an important partner to CACLV for our overall objectives. Mike has demonstrated the patience that was needed as our program was under construction. Additionally, Mike has demonstrated the capacity to listen to our needs, and a willingness to assist in our development. Finally, Mike makes himself personably available when we need to reach out to him. Altogether, we have been very pleased with his team’s dedication, work product, and service. I give Mike the highest contractor recommendation possible.
