State Sen. Toby Stavisky, D-Whitestone, is urging residents to apply for clean-up jobs in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Stavisky pointed to more than $27 million in Disaster National Emergency Grant assistance that will be used to hire workers to clean up the storm's aftermath.
“Since Hurricane Sandy devastated our state last month, many are still just trying to get back on their feet,” Stavisky said. “This aid will help these New Yorker’s back to work and rebuild our damaged infrastructure.”
Stavisky commended Gov. Andrew Cuomo for working to bring federal disaster assistance to the state.
“Working together is the only way we all can rebuild and ensure all New Yorkers have a happy and hopeful holiday season," Stavisky said.
