Crouch Announces $13 Million in Flood Recovery Aid from State

November 5, 2018

Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Bainbridge) is announcing that an additional $13 million in recovery aid will be made available from the state to those impacted by the recent August 13-15 storms. Among those eligible are those affected in Broome, Chenango and Delaware counties.

"This summer, families in my district were forced to endure unspeakable damage to their homes and businesses as flash flooding devastated much of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes. It is our duty to help those who are working to pick up the pieces,” said Crouch. “The cost to rebuild after the devastation of these storms will be high, so I am pleased that New York is able to deliver aid and relief to those who are in need."

These funds will be used to offer grants of up to $50,000 to reimburse costs associated with rebuilding and rehabilitating primary residential homes. These funds are meant to help with the costs which insurance and other available aid do not cover. The funds may be used to cover the costs such as repairing foundations, heating systems, electrical systems, wells and septic systems, insulation and flooring.

Those wishing to apply who reside in Broome, Chenango or Delaware counties should contact: Arbor Housing and Development at 607-654-7487 ex 2049.
