Press Releases

Schumer, Gillibrand Announce Over $53 Million in FEMA Funding To Reimburse The Cost Of Cleanup to Nassau County Public Works After Superstorm Sandy.

Washington, DC - September 26, 2013 - U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand today announced over $53 million in federal funding for the Nassau County Public Works for debris removal after Superstorm Sandy. The reimbursement is being provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“After Superstorm Sandy hit communities in Nassau County, the roads and right of ways were ridden with debris causing a very dangerous situation for residents,” said Schumer. “This federal reimbursement will help repay Nassau County for the tremendous amount of work that needed to take place in order to remove the debris. I am pleased to announce this federal funding which means that Long Islanders will not have to shoulder the expenses entirely.”

“This federal funding will provide much needed relief for Long Island families and businesses impacted by Superstorm Sandy,” Gillibrand said. “It is critical that Nassau County has the necessary resources on the ground to recover and rebuild.”

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano stated, "I thank Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand for their continued partnership in working with Nassau County to securing Hurricane Sandy reimbursements for Nassau County taxpayers."

Superstorm Sandy brought strong winds and heavy rains to the New York tri-state area, resulting in downed trees, scattered vegetative debris and other materials strewn throughout busy roadways.

FEMA has awarded the Nassau County Public Works $53,335,940 for debris removal work after Superstorm Sandy. Nassau County utilized contract services for tree removal, vegetative debris hauling, vegetative debris chipping and stump removal.
