Federal Dollars To Help Commercial And Recreation Fishing Industry Rebuild After Superstorm Sandy

$20 MILLION IN GRANTS TO SANDY-IMPACTED FISHING INDUSTRYGovernor Andrew M. Cuomo today urged coastal fishing businesses harmed by Storm Sandy to apply for available funding through the State’s recently approved Coastal Fishing Industry Grant Program. Under the program, eligible businesses will be able to apply for grants of up to $50,000 to cover uncompensated losses. “The regions most devastated by Superstorm Sandy are also vital parts of our state’s fishing industry, supporting thousands of local jobs and generating billions in economic activity,” Governor Cuomo said. “With peak fishing season arriving, I am directing new federal funds to support this critical industry on Long Island and Staten Island as it works to reach full recovery.”
