Sandy aid eligibility for LI communities

New York communities getting federal block grants for disaster recovery are grouped into Community Reconstruction Zones, or CRZs. Here are the communities within 20 CRZs created on Long Island, and amounts for which they are eligible from the first installment of $1.7 billion in funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The HUD funds, including in the superstorm Sandy recovery bill passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama, are meant to meet recovery needs that are not otherwise covered by other federal assistance, private insurance or other sources. The CRZs will use the first installment of funds to develop plans for making communities less vulnerable to destructive storms. Each CRZ will have a planning committee made up of town or village officials, elected legislators and community members.
