City Officials, Homeless Advocates Call For More Affordable Housing To Accommodate Displaced Sandy Victims
Superstorm Sandy significantly worsened the city’s affordable housing crisis, according to Brooklyn City Councilman Brad Lander.
The administration of Gov. Chris Christie on Monday announced a plan to expand temporary and permanent housing for thousands of New Jersey residents who were displaced by Superstorm Sandy in late October.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the temporary housing programs for both New York and New Jersey, amid the damage of Superstorm Sandy.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was in Bethpage on Tuesday, along with Rep. Peter King and Rep. Steve Israel to discuss the temporary housing options for those who lost their homes in the storm.
