The Federal Emergency Management Center (FEMA) has opened a multipurpose recovery center for individuals and businesses impacted by Hurricane Sandy at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. The Center will operate from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm, seven days a week until further notice.
FEMA representatives will assist individuals, households and businesses apply for financial aid for losses and damages related to the storm. In addition, staff from the Small Buiness Administration will be on hand to help businesses apply for low-interest loans for storm-related repairs. In addition, representatives from Con Edison will be present to answer customer questions about outages and restorations. A number of social service agencies will also help staff the center, providing residents with counseling and other recovery assistance.
The 2009 Education Committee Report documents the activities of the Committee for the 2009 legislative session. In order to create a cover for the report, Senator Oppenheimer sponsored an art contest for children in first through third grade, within her district. One winner was chosen for the cover and five runners-up were chosen to be included within the report. Senator Oppenheimer wishes to thank all of the children who entered the contest, as well as their art teachers. Congratulations to Gustavo Morales, of the Trinity Elementary School in New Rochelle,
