ON NEW YORK RISING

The State Legislature gave final passage Monday to a bill that would require the Cuomo administration to report quarterly on unresolved cases and unpaid disaster claims.

In the memo to BILL NO A07204A ( SAME AS S04694-A):

"As of October 2014, it was reported that repairs were complete for
only 2,000 of the 8,896 Long Island homes that were approved for aid
by NY Rising. More than 5,000 households were still awaiting funding
assistance eligibility determinations. Since NY Rising was formed,
there have been countless reports from the frustrated people of Long
Island of an overly complex and cumbersome process to apply for and
obtain the funding required to rebuild or rehabilitate their homes, to
participate in the acquisition and buy-out programs, and to navigate
the archaic system, in order to restart their lives."
