Dear Friend, Today, the Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Commission, a task force designed to help rebuild Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River shoreline infrastructure—shared that applications for homeowners seeking flood relief funding will be available on or around October 1st. The Commission encourages those looking to apply for assistance to sign up for updates from New York State Homes and Community Renewal—the agency overseeing the program—by clicking here. If you are already making repairs to your shoreline property, I urge you to keep track of your related expenses. In addition, I wanted to remind you that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has also revised and extended the expiration date of the Lake Ontario Flood Recovery General Permit until September 30th, 2019. For more information on the General Permit, please click here. Over the last three years, I have seen firsthand the hardships caused by high waters and truly understand the critical importance of providing relief to property owners. I will continue to provide you with updates as I learn of them, and again, I urge you to sign up for application updates from the state by clicking here.
