Reps. Maloney and Delgado Call for Additional Federal Resources for Hurricane Ida Recovery


Newburgh, NY – U.S. Representatives Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) and Antonio Delgado (NY-19) urged President Joe Biden to stand ready to expeditiously approve Individual Assistance and other aid to the governments, small businesses, and residents of Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties.

This letter follows a successful request for an Emergency Declaration, which provided direct federal assistance and reimbursement for mass care, including evacuation, and shelter support. 

“State and federal experts have estimated that this storm caused more than $50 million in damage to public infrastructure and property, while more than 1,200 residences suffered damage. While there was significant damage in Westchester County and New York City, counties in the Hudson Valley have also experienced significant damage because of Hurricane Ida and require federal assistance,” wrote the Representatives.

“These communities, homeowners, and small businesses need robust federal aid in order to recover,” continued the Representatives.
