FEMA plans to dole out 3 billion to NYCHA for Sandy recovery

Posted on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 5:12 pm    

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will grant $3 billion for the repair and fortification of different New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) sites across the city, the New York Daily News reported on March 31.

According to the report, 33 NYCHA housing projects in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn ravaged by Superstorm Sandy will benefit from the grant. The aid is said to be the biggest financial assistance package given out by FEMA in history. Mayor de Blasio said the multi-billion dollar assistance would not just restore NYCHA public housing projects to conditions before the storm havocked the city, but will also make the houses more resilient.

This is definitely good news for those who have been tremendously affected by Superstorm Sandy, which occurred about three years ago. However, homeowners recovering from the storm still face the challenge of dealing with flood insurers who refuse to provide the financial assistance they once promised.
