Albany, NY - July 5, 2013 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), at the request of the State of New York, has approved a 30-day extension to the Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program beginning on July 7th. This new extension allows eligible survivors from Superstorm Sandy who cannot return to their homes to stay in participating hotels or motels

The new checkout date for those in the TSA program is August 6, 2013. FEMA will call applicants eligible for the extension to notify them of the new checkout date.

“By extending the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program, we are securing an important resource for those victims of Superstorm Sandy that are still, after months, unable to return home,” Governor Cuomo said. “This program continues to provide essential assistance to those who are still feeling the terrible effects of the damage from the storm.”

This is a short-term program that places families in hotels while they work toward a longer-term housing plan.
