Following the Governor Cuomo’s announcement that the city would spend $400 million to buy up homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy, storm victims are receiving some more good news.  The deadline for storm victims to register for FEMA assistance has been extended to Mar. 29 from Feb. 27, 2013, Governor Cuomo announced today.

Federal disaster assistance for residents of one of the 13 disaster-declared counties can include money for rental assistance, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance. The counties eligible for assistance: Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Richmond, Rockland, Westchester, Suffolk, Queens, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan and Ulster.

“It is clear that many New Yorkers impacted by Hurricane Sandy are still in need and must have access to disaster assistance and resources to help them get back on their feet,” Governor Cuomo said. “This extension from FEMA will provide impacted residents with more time to get help so they can rebuild as soon as possible.”

The nearly 30-day application extension also includes a lowered-interest loans  for individuals and small businesses through the Small Business Administration. –Christopher Cameron
