I am one of the lucky 8,600 who has received most of the money promised by NY Rising to rebuild my house ["Some Sandy victims frustrated by NY Rising," News, Sept. 14]. I am only waiting on another $1,595 promised.
However, I do know retired victims on fixed incomes who submitted applications in July 2013. They received letters stating that they qualified for assistance and still, all this time later, have not received a penny. This is an absolute disgrace.
Can someone in authority please stop the endless promises that the checks are in the mail?
