State officials are scheduled to give an update on NY Rising's policies and programs during an appearance at the Long Island Regional Planning Council Tuesday -- almost 2 1/2 years after superstorm Sandy devastated thousands of homes and businesses on the Island.

"The council felt it was important, and it's always timely, to hear an update from the Governor's Office of Storm Recovery as to where things stand, as regards to funding of homeowners and businesses to restore them back to their pre-Sandy conditions," council chairman John D. Cameron said.

Jamie Rubin, executive director of the Governor's Office of Storm Recovery, and Jon Kaiman, special adviser to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Long Island storm recovery, are scheduled to make the presentation.

The meeting, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., will be at Hofstra University's David S. Mack Hall in Hempstead. It is open to the public.

NY Rising is the state agency charged with administering $4.4 billion in federal funds for storm recovery from the effects of Sandy and tropical storms Irene and Lee. Officials last appeared before the council to talk about the agency's programs in November 2013.
