ADDITIONAL FLOOD RECOVERY INFORMATION

Yesterday, the NYS Economic Development agency reached out to me to help encourage businesses affected by Irene and Lee to work first with their insurance companies and then apply for FEMA assistance. Businesses can also call the regular FEMA number at (800) 621-3362 as well as the SBA Disaster Customer Assistance Center at (800) 659-2955. The State agency also encourages businesses to go to its website at www.esd.ny.gov to fill out a questionnaire. This way, if other assistance becomes available, the agency knows how much damage has been done to entrepreneurs in this State. For businesses who have problems and concerns, call NYS Economic Development at (800) STATE-NY (1-800-782-8369).
