After hearing from citizens about the complicated application form for the Lake Ontario Flood Recovery Program, Supervisor Reilich contacted Governor Cuomo’s office on behalf of the Town of Greece residents to form a new application that would be easier to navigate. A new version of the application is now available on the New York State Homes and Community Renewal website under their Lake Ontario Flood Recovery page (http://www.nyshcr.org/Programs/NYS-Flood/).

The Lake Ontario Flood Recovery Program, which is $7 million in state funding for homeowners along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River who have experienced flood damage, is administered through not-for-profit housing organizations seeking to help homeowners affected by the flooding. Homeowners in Monroe County seeking assistance are encouraged to contact Sheen Housing at 585-657-4114. Homeowners may also e-mail Sheen Housing at sheen2@rochester.rr.com or visit their website at www.sheenhousing.org.

“After hearing from concerned residents about the overwhelming length and difficulty of the Lake Ontario Flood Recovery application, I contacted the Governor’s office and worked with them to make the application easier to navigate. It should be a simple process to receive financial assistance for damages incurred by the flooding. I encourage everyone – regardless of how much or little damage they have incurred – to fill out an application for financial assistance,” Reilich said.
