Sandy Recovery Housing
The Sandy Recovery Housing Counseling Program provides free HUD-certified housing counseling services to renters and homeowners who were impacted by the storm and lived in one of the nine counties the federal government determined were most affected by Sandy. Registration with FEMA is not required to receive assistance through this program.
Housing counselors provide helpful information about programs and resources that are available to renters and homeowners who are still recovering from Superstorm Sandy. As part of the counseling process, counselors will ask questions and collect specific information from clients to develop a customized counseling plan specific to the needs of the renter or homeowner.
Empowering individuals still recovering from Superstorm Sandy
The counseling plan may include individualized or group counseling services in the following areas:
Fair Housing Education
Reverse Mortgage/Home Equity Conversion Mortgage
Pre/Post Home Purchase Counseling
Housing counselors can also help renters and homeowners complete and submit applications to State-funded recovery programs and services, answer questions about the application process and obligations for program participation, and refer clients to other applicable State-funded recovery resources for which they may be eligible.
As part of the counseling plan, counselors will schedule regular meetings, share information about upcoming events or information sessions, and provide supportive services to eligible program applicants.
