No Flood Aid for New York Homeowners

Central New York and Mohawk Valley property owners who suffered damage from flash flooding from June 28th through July 4 are being left high and dry by the federal government.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is denying individual assistance requests saying New York State failed to meet the criteria for aid.

The New York State Legislature is expected to be called back to Albany by Governor Andrew Cuomo in the upcoming weeks to address the individual flood recovery issue. The Governor has said the state would step in to help private property owners should the federal government fail to provide assistance.

Last week, President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration for New York, but that measure only covered public infrastructure and flood response costs.
