FEMA, the State of New York, and other disaster relief agencies stepped in immediately following Sandy to provide public and private recovery assistance to homeowners in need of help. The State of New York also 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.
After you register, a member of the NYS Sandy Help Team will contact you to review your eligibility and assist in the application process.
