Rep. Grimm Says Staten Islanders Would be Better Off Living in Long Island for Sandy Housing Recovery

 Today, Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-Staten Island/Brooklyn) issued the following statement:

“Today marks one year since President Obama came to Staten Island and toured the damage in New Dorp Beach. On that day, promises were made by our President, our Governor, and our Mayor. While the State’s housing recovery program seems to be in full swing, far less can be said about the City’s Build-it-Back Program.

“On Staten Island, most homeowners have yet to see a dime of federal funding distributed through Build-it-Back, while some have yet to move back home.  For the first time in their lives, they may be wishing they lived on Long Island.

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES HOUSING RECOVERY PROGRAM TO COMPENSATE HOMEOWNERS FOR REPAIRS OF DAMAGE DUE TO STORMS IRENE, LEE AND SANDY

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that New York State’s Housing Recovery Program will fully compensate homeowners affected by Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee, and Superstorm Sandy for the repair costs of damage to their homes due to ‘earth movement.’ Under FEMA’s existing National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations, damage caused by the movement of soil or earth – even if the movement is the result of flooding – is not eligible for coverage. In comparison, physical damage to a building caused directly by flood waters is covered under NFIP. As a result of this gap in coverage, hundreds of impacted homeowners throughout the state have had their NFIP claims denied, leaving many with no place to live and no resources to rebuild.

Timberland Joins Forces With Yellow Boots For a Day of Community Service In New Dorp Beach

For the team from Timberland, this service event is especially meaningful.  Back on September 11, 2001, a group of Timberland sales employees and partners were serving at a school in the Bronx when the 9/11 tragedy struck. The team stayed and served that day, and has returned each year since, on September 11, to serve the local New York community and remember the events of that day.
