Residents and businesses who suffered damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida that recently struck the New York area may now qualify for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA recently added Nassau County to its federal emergency declaration, which means residents and business owners in the Village of Great Neck Plaza and other areas in Nassau County may now be able to receive the resources needed to recover and repair damage from the storm. 

To expedite the process for those applying for assistance, FEMA opened an office in Michael J. Tully Park in New Hyde Park to help local applicants for assistance.

Officials recommend that anyone applying for assistance from FEMA first call the FEMA Call Center at 1-800-621-3362 to obtain a case number. Applicants for assistance will be asked to provide a general list of damages and losses, insurance information, a current cell phone number and address and a Social Security number. Anyone who was displaced as a result of the storm may be eligible for funds for housing assistance, home repairs, replacement of personal property, legal services, unemployment assistance and crisis counseling.

After speaking with the FEMA Call Center, applicants can then visit the FEMA office in Michael J. Tully Park, New Hyde Park, at 1801 Evergreen Ave.  Applicants visiting the FEMA New Hyde Park office should bring with them a form of ID, the FEMA Call Center case number, and any additional documents requested by the FEMA Call Center representative. The FEMA office in New Hyde Park will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

For more information, visit www.disasterassistance.gov or call the FEMA call center at 1-800-621-3362.


Disaster Assistance Now Available- Remnants of Hurricane Ida (DR-4615)

The following information has been provided by the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management:

"On Friday (9/10), the Remnants of Hurricane Ida (DR-4615) was federally declared a major disaster.  This declaration releases Public Assistance, Individual Assistance and the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Disaster Loans.  Public Assistance (PA) reimburses governmental entities and non-profits for work done to respond and recover from the impacts of Ida.  The Individual Assistance program assists households that have been impacted, while the SBA’s Disaster Loans help businesses recover from the disaster."

“If your household was impacted by the Remnants of Hurricane Ida, you can now apply for disaster assistance, including but not limited to home repairs, temporary housing, low-cost loans, and other programs to help recover.  You can apply to this program by going to www.disasterassistance.gov, entering your zip code and clicking on “Nassau County”, or by calling 800-621-3362.  If your business was impacted, you can now apply to the Small Business Administration’s Disaster Loans by going to disasterloanassistance.sba.gov or by calling (800) 659-2955.  Disaster Loans help to repair or replace disaster-damaged property, as well as help businesses meet their ordinary and necessary financial obligations that cannot be met as a direct result of the disaster.”

The Village of Great Neck Plaza and Hofstra Introduce

“Prosper in Great Neck Plaza” to Support Village Businesses

Hofstra University’s Scott Skodnek Business Development Center (BDC) and the Village of Great Neck Plaza are partnering to sponsor a free workshop series to help local businesses navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual series, Prosper in Great Neck Plaza, will be held on the second Wednesday of each month from June to December 2021, and will provide attendees with information on how to grow their businesses, manage their finances, and market their way out of COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected many downtown businesses,” said Ted Rosen, the Mayor of Great Neck Village. “We are concentrating on working with businesses that are in the Village of Great Neck Plaza to offer services for finance and management, and to help them succeed. We hope this partnership can be a model for other communities.”

The Hofstra BDC offers resources, support and education to businesses operating on Long Island and the surrounding metropolitan area through a variety of programs. The BDC has experience with providing technical assistance to businesses navigating the pandemic, including with applying for loans and loan forgiveness, and administers two 60-training courses annually through its NYS Empire State Development Entrepreneurship Assistance Center.

“We look forward to supporting downtown businesses in the Village of Great Neck Plaza grow and thrive, which will help our community’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe this will serve as an example of how universities and governments can develop collaborative relationships to foster innovation and support economic development,” said Stacey Sikes, executive dean of entrepreneurship and business development at Hofstra University.

This workshop series will include discussions on COVID-19 loan assistance, social media marketing and financial management. Participants who complete all sessions will receive a certificate of completion from Hofstra University. Businesses located in the Village of Great Neck Plaza can email ideaHUb@Hofstra.edu to register for the free series.
