Brooklyn, NY – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I) today has announced a series of new measures his office is taking to assist residents and business owners who suffered damage due to Superstorm Sandy. Following last week’s announcement from Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, creating the New York City Build It Back Grant program, Senator Golden is teaming up with both Neighborhood Improvement Association and The Mayor’s Housing Recovery Office in order to give direct assistance in with grant applications and helping to provide more detailed information.


Starting this week and continuing throughout the application period, State Senator Golden and the Neighborhood Improvement Association are sponsoring office hours at 2738 Gerritsen Avenue to assist residents in filling out the City’s new Sandy grant program application “Build it Back.” The office will be open:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday from 2pm – 5pm

Tuesday from 2pm – 7pm.


On Sunday, June 23rd, from 12pm to 4pm, Senator Golden and the Mayor’s Housing Recovery Office are hosting a Forum at PS 277 located at 2529 Gerritsen Avenue. Multiple agencies will be answering questions on Sandy grants and issues.


“The reason why I ran for public office was to be a public servant. Helping my constituents is the most important part of my job as State Senator, and to be able to provide those most in need following the storm is not only my responsibility, but the right thing to do,” said Senator Golden. “I invite all who have been effected by Sandy to visit my office, or attend the forum, to get more information and fill out a grant application.”


For more information on both the Forum and help with grant applications please call 718-238-6044.
