Southern Tier and Finger Lakes Storm and Flood Recovery Program
Severe Storms and Flash Flooding On August 13 – 15, 2018
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced $13 million is available for restoration and recovery efforts following the severe storms and flash flooding on August 13-15 that severely impacted communities in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions.
A new residential assistance program has been created to provide funding to primary homeowners whose damages exceed insurance claims and other available aid. With maximum grants of $50,000, this program will help eliminate the unmet need of homeowners. The program will be administered by New York State Homes and Community Renewal, and assistance will be provided in Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca, Tioga, Delaware, and Chenango counties.
Applications from homeowners for the residential assistance program will be accepted starting Monday, November 5. The deadline for applications is Monday, February 4, 2019. Applications will be available from local not-for-profit housing organizations, who are administering the program. Homeowners seeking an application should contact:
