After Ida Storm Destroyed Inwood Homes, Help Is Hard To Find

September 21, 2021

Rep. Adriano Espaillat's office did, however, respond to Patch's request for comment.

"Earlier this month, Congressman Espaillat joined New York Governor Hochul, New York City Councilmember Mark Levine, New York State Assemblymember Carmen De La Rosa and others to assess the impact of Hurricane Ida across his district and saw firsthand the devastation and impact to families.

"He spearheaded a bipartisan letter to the leaders of the House Appropriations Committee, of which he's a member, urging legislation to provide the highest amount of federal funds possible for New York and continues to work in collaboration with federal agencies, state and local community partners to help support the ongoing cleanup efforts.

"Our office is working with a number of constituents who have reached out following the storm and our team is helping them navigate the federal assistance application process and utilize both federal and state resources available to them during this ongoing recovery efforts."
