Thousands of homeowners across New York have been directly impacted by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene or Tropical Storm Lee. The devastation wrought by these storms was unlike anything New York has seen in recent history. While FEMA, the State of New York and other disaster relief agencies stepped in immediately following the storm to provide public and private recovery assistance to homeowners in need of help, the State worked to secure Congressional approval of additional federal aid to meet the substantial need. The program outlined here is subject to federal approval.
The State of New York, local governments and its partners are now accepting registrations for housing and small business assistance for residents located in disaster-declared counties. These registrations will be used to determine potential program eligibility for each registrant. To register for housing and small business assistance, please click here.
Following your registration, a member of the NYS Sandy Help Team will contact you to review your eligibility and assist in the application process.
Please check the calendar at http://nysandyhelp.ny.gov/ to find out dates and times when the NYS Sandy Help Team may be in your area. New dates and times will be added regularly, so be sure to check back often.
