With an April 11th deadline quickly approaching, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano reminds all residents whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Sandy to register for the NY Rising Housing Recovery Program. The New York State Office of Storm Recovery (OSR) requires that homeowners affected by Hurricane Sandy register and begin their claims by the April 11, 2014 deadline. Required documentation can be submittedafter the deadline only in order to complete your claim.
State officials report that homeowners who applied by January 20th have been issued checks for home reconstruction. At least 4,650 Nassau residents have been issued rebuilding payments totaling over $201 million. These funds were made available through the State’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program, funded by the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development.
