Healthcare providers share in $200M Sandy relief

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has awarded $200 million to more than 450 Empire State healthcare and human service providers to help repair and rebuild facilities damaged by Hurricane Sandy, according to a statement from the governor's office. The grants include $65 million for repair, rebuilding and renovation, $52 million for unreimbursed operating costs, $72 million for ongoing costs, and $11 million for "other eligible" costs. "These organizations continue to be some of the most important boots on the ground in New York's hardest hit areas," said New York Senate Majority Coalition Co-Leader Jeff Klein. "I'm proud that we can deliver the funds these organizations need, so they can rebuild and continue to serve communities in need." Announcement
