Nassau Sandy Fund Offers Help Bridging Aid Gap

The Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund is inviting county residents impacted by Superstorm Sandy to apply for aid if they lack insurance and government assistance.

The fund created in November is also designed to assist those whose losses exceed reimbursements from their insurance carrier and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

“With the storm devastating the lives of thousands of our residents, it is incumbent upon our community to do all we can to aid residents in their recovery and rebuilding efforts,” Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said.

More than 35,725 Nassau residents were displaced and more than 34,602 vehicles were damaged or destroyed in the storm, according to Mangano.

Application forms can be found on the fund’s website.

Donations can be made to The Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund, care of the Nassau County Police Department, Room 216, 1490 Franklin Ave., Mineola, NY 11501.
