FEMA says the extension is for residents living in New York City and in the counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster.


Federal aid includes money for rental assistance, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.
