FEMA Extends Deadline For Sandy Relief Program
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the deadline for residents whose homes were damaged by Sandy to apply for the STEP program.
Those who have yet to apply to the Sheltering and Temporary Essential Power (STEP) Program now have until Jan. 18. This is the second deadline extension for applicants.
The program offers assistance with temporarily restoring electricity, heat and hot water to damaged homes while permanent repair work continues. The goal is to get displaced residents back in their homes quickly.
Residents seeking assistance through the Nassau County STEP Program should dial 1-888-684-4267. Suffolk residents can apply by calling 211.
