As per Nicole Malliotakis: Great news! The City has responded to our comments and informed me that they will develop a plan reimburse Sandy victims who have paid out of pocket for repairs. I applaud the city for hearing and responding to our community's request. Many people took the initiative to get their homes rebuilt and risked falling into a gap in the CDBG program. Many of these men and women worked and sacrificed in order to secure a nest egg for their later years in life. It would be a shame for them to lose it all due to unforeseen tragedy and an oversight by their government in crafting a recovery assistance plan. Many were left with the sole option of withdrawing cash from their retirement savings to pay for reconstruction. Others have exhausted their credit cards and drawn on cash reserves because they were left nowhere to live. Telling them that they are not eligible for reimbursement would have been wrong and unfair.
