Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is deploying Sandy Help Team representatives to locations in Rockland County on Monday, May 13 and Tuesday, May 14 to help homeowners and business owners affected by Superstorm Sandy apply for recovery aid.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey said, “As many Rockland County homeowners and businesses recover and rebuild from Superstorm Sandy, it is good news that these Sandy Help Team representatives will be available to help local residents apply for badly-needed storm aid. Federal support in the wake of Sandy has been critical in helping residents of the Lower Hudson Valley get back on their feet, and I am pleased that Rockland residents will have access to these important resources.”

 

County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef said, “I am pleased that the Sandy Help Team will be visiting the Village of Piermont and Town of Stony Point. Their presence will certainly complement the outstanding efforts of our county agencies, in particular the Office of Fire and Emergency Services and Community Development Office, in continuing to map out strategies to help our business and homeowners recover and rebuild from Super Storm Sandy.”
