“My office worked to secure $11+ billion in disaster relief for New York City, including more than $5 billion to directly help businesses, nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters recover from Hurricane Ida,” said Rep. Espaillat. “As efforts continue to help residents reach the resources that they need to recover, residents should utilize the following resources to apply for assistance and be wary of possible scams and frauds attempting to take advantage of disaster survivors.
