NY Gets Grant For Sandy Cleanup
by News


New York state has received a $27 million federal grant that will go toward hiring people for Superstorm Sandy cleanup efforts.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the National Emergency Grant Sunday. The money is going to go to communities hit hard by the storm so they can hire people to assist in the cleanup.

The state Department of Labor is administering the funds.

At an event in Brooklyn about the grant, about two dozen people were already lined up to apply for the jobs, and officials say 800 people have already applied.

The jobs are expected to last about six months and pay up to $15 per hour.
