Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced the implementation of three New York State programs, administered by Nassau County, to assist homeowners and business owners that were impacted by Superstorm Sandy.
The implementation of these programs is moving forward with the understanding that funds, although approved by the United States Congress, are still not yet available and details of the programs are still being developed and may change before a final version of the programs are released.
“Working with Governor Cuomo and his staff, we are pleased to launch a pre-registration assistance to prepare residents to apply for vital recovery programs,” said County Executive Mangano. “I encourage all of the residents and business owners eligible for Sandy recovery programs to visit the website and to stop by one of the Disaster Recovery Centers this Saturday to complete the pre-application process.”
All residents are encouraged to visit www.NYSANDYHELP.NY.gov to begin the pre-application process.
New York State and Nassau County are also manning Disaster Recovery Centers to assist applicants from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 at the following locations:
- Long Beach Recreation Center and Ice arena, 700 Magnolia Blvd., Long Beach
- Sacred Heart Parish (Island Park Railroad Station), 127 Long Beach Road, Island Park
