The state and federal government have opened six disaster recovery centers in the city and Westchester County to help New Yorkers impacted by the remnants of Tropical Storm, Governor Kathy Hochul announced Thursday.
“New Yorkers who were impacted by last week’s devastating floods and storm damage can now receive in-person, one-on-one assistance with professionals equipped to assist in the recovery process,” Hochul said in a statement. “I thank our partners in the federal government for working quickly to establish these necessary facilities as we continue to get New Yorkers the help they need.”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the US Small Business Administration deployed recovery specialists to assist renters, homeowners, and business owners find all government help available to them.
