Kaiman, the former North Hempstead Town supervisor and the new chairman of the Nassau Interim Finance Authority, is the liaison between Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Sandy-affected areas of Long Island, and will coordinate state support for communities and homeowners under the state’s New York Rising program.

More than $850 million is earmarked for public infrastructure and building improvement projects across storm-affected communities under NY Rising.
