In light of current events and the spread of the Novel Coronavirus, the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery is currently operating its NY Rising Programs remotely. As such, we have made the following adjustments to our Farmingdale and Albany office operations in an effort to protect both applicants and staff:
· Walk-in meetings have been suspended; however, case managers are available to assist in your recovery efforts. You may call or email your case manager or contact the call center at 1-844-9NYRISING with any questions.
· In-person inspections have been temporarily deferred. If you have an inspection scheduled during the next two weeks, we will be reaching out to reschedule.
· Checks will be distributed via US Postal Service after a grant agreement is e-signed or mailed to our office. Our mailing address is:
NY Rising Program
500 Bi County Boulevard
Farmingdale, NY 11735
The Program will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available. We also join Governor Cuomo in encouraging all New Yorkers to stay inside, maintain a safe distance from others and wash their hands frequently as we implement measures to promote the collective health of our State.
