New York Rising does not help homeowners who bought after Sandy.   So what do you do if you want to raise your house and you bought after Sandy?

The city of Long Beach is petitioning New York State exactly for this reason , for a grant to get some more money to help in "hazard mitigation".  This would include money for elevating your home even if you bought after Sandy.

If you havn't done so already please fill out the attached form and send it back to city hall.

The more residents the better.  Even if you already did New York rising.  This is just a petition to New York State for more money for our community.  Cant hurt. 

Any questions call city hall Megan Porter 516-431-1000  ext 786

Thanks Everyone!

    It's like getting a deal on a used car because of body damage and expecting someone to fix it for you on their dollar.  If you bought post Sandy, you assumed the risk.  Leave the money for the people that lived through the storm and lost everything.

    In NJ a large chunk of money is going to fund residential developments away from the carnage.  The only one making money on those are the developers themselves.  Well maybe the carpenter or painter who lost everything during the storm can make a few pennies. 

    The "recovery" from this mess is an absolute joke.  At least in NJ.

  • Sorry to hear whats happening in another town in another state.  The ones who lived through it here are getting the money they need through new york rising.

    And after that is done we are thankful that our city is interested in helping ALL its residents against future storms.  Even if you think they shouldn't.
    Jesus is coming, look busy.
