The new Hudson County Long Term Recovery Group is starting a series of Sandy Recovery events at public libraries, schools and nonprofit facilities to help storm-affected residents obtain the information and resources they need to help them make a full recovery from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy.
The first of which will be held at the Hoboken Public Library (500 Park Ave., Hoboken) on Thursday, February 7, at 6pm. This event is designed to provide long-term financial recovery information through a presentation by Operation HOPE, and to raise awareness and understanding of the need for Sandy-affected residents to apply for SBA loans in order to fully complete the FEMA application process. The former will be prepared by Jason Yancey, combined Director of HCA and Director of Consumer Financial Protection, the latter will be given by Louise Porter, Public Affairs Specialist for the U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of Disaster Assistance. There will also be a presentation by Jessica Herrera, from the Mental Health Association, to offer resources to Sandy victims coping with the emotional impact of recent storms and flooding.
Hosted by the Hoboken Public Library. Sponsored by Hudson County Habitat for Humanity.
