Hurricane Ida Disaster Relief

Yesterday President Biden added Westchester County to the Major Disaster Declaration which will allow our residents who were impacted by the remnants of Hurricane Ida to receive federal financial relief. 

Assistance includes funding for emergency protective measures, debris removal and repairs to public buildings and infrastructure, as well as direct support for individuals and homeowners. New Yorkers, including New Castle residents, may also be able to receive funds for other uninsured or under-insured disaster-caused expenses and serious needs, such as repair or replacement of personal property or funds for moving and storage, or medical, dental, and child care. Homeowners and renters should make every effort to document and photograph their losses.

Eligible homeowners will work directly with FEMA to obtain funding. Assistance can include funds for temporary housing units, housing and driveway repairs, crisis counseling, unemployment assistance, and legal services. Acting Town Supervisor Jeremy Saland is working with Congressman Mondaire Jones’ office to schedule a FEMA inspection and continues to work with both NYS Senator Peter Harckham and Assemblyman Chris Burdick in their efforts to assist New Castle.

Governor Hochul announced the launch of the new online resource hub for impacted New Yorkers, available at ny.gov/ida. The hub provides information on available assistance programs and where to find services such as shelter and access to food. The information on the site will be updated as more resources for New Yorkers become available. Additionally, the State is partnering with New York City to support the Ida Recovery Service Centers. These centers enlisted the support of elected officials who represent impacted communities and will offer information on all available resources and assistance.

Residents are encouraged to review the attached pamphlet provided by FEMA and the links below which detail, among other important information, the relief available to residents and how to apply.
