The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved a 21-day extension of the Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program for Sandy victims, Governor Cuomo announced Wednesday.

“The Transitional Sheltering Assistance program continues to be an essential resource for the New Yorkers who were hit hardest by Sandy,” said Cuomo. “This extension allows them to have a temporary place to stay and more time to get their lives back to normal.”

Through the program, storm survivors who cannot return to their homes can stay in participating hotels or motels while they try to find long-term shelter.

FEMA will call those eligible for the extension to notify them of the new April 14 checkout date.

To qualify for TSA, survivors must first apply through FEMA by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, via smartphone or tablet by using the FEMA app or going to m.fema.gov, or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362).
