Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is extending relief programs for victims of Sandy.

The Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program, which allows those who lost their homes in the storm to stay in participating hotels and motels across New York, will extended for an additional 14 days, until February 9. Those who wish to participate in the program must be checked in by January 26.

“We remain committed to assisting all victims of Hurricane Sandy, ensuring that they have the shelter they need, especially in this cold weather, Cuomo said. “The Transitional Sheltering Assistance program will continue to provide shelter to those New Yorkers who do not have homes to return and help others with critically needed funding to rebuild.”

The Individual Assistance program, which gives victims of the storm funds to repair their homes or small businesses, will now have a 30-day extended deadline.

Those in need of assistance can apply online at www.disasterassistance.gov, via smartphone or tablet by using the FEMA app or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362).
