From the City of Long Beach website:

"The City of Long Beach is pleased to announce that NY Rising has modified the Housing Recovery Program's September 1st deadline, allowing for extra time if certain conditions are met.

On June 8th, the Long Beach City Council and City Manager sent a letter to Kaii Torrence, Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, Office of Storm Recovery, requesting that the September 1st deadline for homes to be raised be postponed due to the number of residents who were still in various stages of the NY Rising process, awaiting building permits, and/or trying to find a suitable temporary rental while their home is undergoing construction, and will not be able to elevate their homes before that date.

In response, if a homeowner believes that there is chance their home will not be able to pass an interim inspection (i.e., in the process of being raised) by the September 1st deadline, NY Rising will postpone the deadline until June 1, 2018 if the homeowner can provide the following documentation no later than June 30, 2017:
  • A permit from the local building department to commence elevation
  • A receipt from the local building department documenting an application for an elevation permit; or
  • The most recent correspondence from the local building department showing that an elevation permit was submitted"
