Niagara Gazette —
No matter the cause of the flooding, there's still some money available to homeowners. Even without a state of emergency, the 2013 Upstate Flood Recovery Program instituted by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month earmarked money for qualified flooding victims in Niagara County after the Federal Emergency Management Administration denied federal aid.
Assistance can be requested by calling 1-888-769-7243.
"The most important thing to do right now, the most pressing matter, is to get your claims in," Maziarz told residents attending the meeting. "You need to apply, to get in the system. The intake process is just the first step, to get information. It's going to take a while. It's not a fast process."
