Still Shivering From Sandy? FEMA Deadline Extended

For most of us, Superstorm Sandy is just a distant memory. But if you are a business, homeowner or renter who sustained significant damage, you might still be living with the hurricane’s after effects. If you *think* you qualify for relief aid, FEMA has extended their application deadline to Feb 27 for applying online at or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).

FEMA disaster assistance is financial or direct assistance to individuals and families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy and whose losses are not covered by their insurance.

“Our community continues to rise in the face of this disaster, and together, we will become a brighter, better Rockland,” says NYS Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee. “In light of the increasing frequency of natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy that have left many communities across New York State devastated, I am supporting new legislation that would create the Homeowners Bill of Rights to ensure insurance companies inform homeowners of their insurance policy’s specific details and a second measure that would create a more timely and thorough response from insurance companies in cases of disaster.”
