Below is a message from Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski:
After weeks of pushing for assistance, Rockland was added last night to the FEMA Major Disaster Declaration; opening additional support for residents affected by the storm. I want to thank all of the residents who contacted my office about their storm damage which was used in demonstrating the need here locally. I also want to thank my Federal, State, and Local colleagues for their advocacy over the past few weeks. Through this new designation, Rockland residents are eligible for Individual Assistance which in certain circumstances can cover some of the damage incurred.
Here are some steps you can take to prepare for FEMA assistance:
- Take photos of your damaged home and belongings.
- Make a list of damaged or lost items and gather any original receipts you have for those items.
- If applicable, file a claim with your insurance company.
- Go to DisasterAssistance.gov – click “Apply Online” or by calling 1-800-621-3362.
Note: The “Lookup” Function on DisasterAssistance.gov has not been updated yet to include Rockland but should be shortly.
If you have any difficulty or need any assistance, please feel free to reach out to my office at 845-634-9791 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
