posted over 1 year ago by caitria
The Federal Emergency Management Agency opened its first Disaster Recovery Center in Brooklyn on Friday morning in Coney Island.
FEMA’s new location at MCU Park joins at least five others already open in the city and on Long Island to help homeowners, renters and small business people with the slow process of cleaning up in Hurricane Sandy’s wake.
According to a FEMA spokeswoman, agency representatives will be accepting applications for residents and business owners for assistance with small business loans for repairing storm damage and temporary housing.
Representatives from the federal Small Business Administration will also be on hand.
The opening of the FEMA's assistance location in Coney Island continued the gradual expansion of clean up and relief efforts by government officials throughout Brooklyn and the rest of the region.
