Brooklynites who sustained property damage in Hurricane Sandy can apply for funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. To request for federal aid, register at disasteras
After applying for help, assessors will visit damaged properties and survey the conditions. The agency won’t give a timeline for how long Brooklynites must wait before receiving funds — it could range from a week to more than a year.
Mayor Bloomberg is also accepting donations to the Mayor’s Fund for New York, so residents may be able to apply for some of that money at a later time.
