October 2, 2019

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York homeowners hurt by record flooding along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River have until the end of this month to seek state funding.

People living in Cayuga, Jefferson, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans, Oswego, St. Lawrence and Wayne counties can apply for up to $50,000 to offset damages sustained this year to their primary residences.

The window for applications opened Oct. 1.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office says $20 million is available through the Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Flood Relief and Recovery Program.
