Coronavirus Updates

COVID-19 Update:

The Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery continues to operate its NY Rising Programs. However, to protect both our applicants and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following adjustments to our Farmingdale and Albany office operations:


  • Walk-in meetings are limited to appointments only; however, case managers are available to assist in your recovery efforts anytime by phone and email. You may call or email your case manager or contact the call center at 1-844-9NYRISING during work hours with any questions.
  • In-person and remote inspections are available, as applicable, on an as needed basis. Our inspection team will be reaching out to schedule inspections based on your preferred method.
  • 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

Suite 300

Farmingdale, NY 11735


The Program will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available. We also join Governor Hochul 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.
