18 Disaster Recovery Centers remain open

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has announced 18 Disaster Recovery Centers are still available throughout New York to help Hurricane Sandy survivors. 

The centers are one-stop shops for homeowners, renters, business owners and other eligible survivors to get assistance as quickly as possible. 

Other reasons for survivors to visit a recovery center:

  • If you registered with FEMA and haven't heard anything
  • If you registered with FEMA and are awaiting an insurance settlement and have questions or aren't sure what to do next
  • If you received the recertification form for continuing temporary rental assistance and have questions or need help completing it
  • If you need assistance completing other forms such as the SBA loan application 

Although it can be a convenient way to obtain one-on-one help, visiting a center is not a requirement for disaster survivors. 

The toll-free telephone numbers operate 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. EST, seven days a week until further notice.

Hurricane Sandy survivors in New York have until Jan. 28, 2013 to register for federal disaster assistance, which can include money for rent, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Friday, July 25 2014 8:45 PM EDT2014-07-26 00:45:49 GMT
    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
