ALBANY – Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R,I-Guilford) announced Friday that New York state will be receiving $93 million in disaster relief grant money for communities affected by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. The funds are for disaster relief, long-term recovery, restoration of infrastructure, housing and economic revitalization in counties that received a disaster declaration in 2011.
“Everybody knows that the flood recovery is still ongoing, and every bit of support and assistance is needed,” said Crouch. “This funding will certainly be put to good use in my district to help with the recovery efforts for the families and communities that were affected by flooding. I look forward to working with Governor Andrew Cuomo to ensure these funds are distributed fairly and in the most timely and efficient manner possible.”
