New Announcement - Money for Flash Flooding Recovery
11/5/2018

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES $13 MILLION IN RELIEF FUNDS FOR COMMUNITIES DAMAGED BY SEVERE STORMS AND FLASH FLOODING

 

Assistance Available to Homeowners in Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca, Tioga, Delaware, and Chenango Counties

 

 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today 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.

 

"Extreme weather is the new normal in New York and it's critical that we build more resilient communities to withstand this reality," Governor Cuomo said. "This funding will help ensure families across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes that were hit hard by recent storms and flash flooding have the resources they need to rebuild stronger and safer than before."

 

"Areas around the world are being impacted by severe weather events that are devastating communities," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "The damage costs millions, making it even more difficult to rebuild and recover in the aftermath of a storm. This funding will help communities in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions rebuild after severe storms and flooding damaged homes and streets in the area. We want to ensure that families are able to recover and build back stronger in the aftermath of a natural disaster."

 

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.

 

The grants can go toward reimbursements to support repairs to and restoration of structures, and other physical damage required for safety and habitability, including foundations, heating systems, electric systems, wells and septic systems, insulation, and flooring.

 

National Weather Service data indicates these regions received between 10 and 20 inches of rain during the 30-day period beginning July 22, 2018. The August storms near the end of this period produced heavy rainfall, flash flooding and strong winds, and combined with ground saturated by this abnormally wet period, produced significant damage.

 

On August 14, the Governor declared a State of Emergency, and nine local governments also declared States of Emergency due to the severity of the storm. Widespread power outages impacted more than 1,500 homes and businesses in the area, and state and local first responders rescued and evacuated more than 200 people from campgrounds in the Finger Lakes Region. 

As a result of the damage caused by these storms, Governor Cuomo requested technical assistance in the form of a Joint Preliminary Damage Assessment on August 24. On October 2, the Federal Government announced approval for a major disaster declaration, making funding available to state government, eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by these severe storms.

 

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:
