Call to Action: Help Housing Co-ops Damaged by Sandy Receive FEMA Recovery Assistance

Housing Co-ops Affected by Hurricane Sandy Need Your Help!

Housing cooperatives in the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Maryland affected by Hurricane Sandy are ineligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) relief programs. FEMA misclassifies housing cooperatives as commercial business associations, making them ineligible for the agency’s Individual and Households Program.

As an NCBA member, you have the opportunity to change this!

Representative Steve Israel (D-NY) has drafted a letter alerting the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA to this issue. If you live in these four affected states, NCBA strongly urges you to contact your representative and encourage them to sign the attached letter .

The deadline to sign the letter is March 13, 2013, so please contact your Members of Congress today.

Thank you for your support of cooperatives.

If you would like to share the success of your advocacy efforts on this issue or have any questions, please contact NCBA’s Vice President of Advocacy, R.L. Condra at 202.383.5480.
