New York released a new plan to spend $41 million in federal funds to help with recovery from Hurricane Ida.
The money will help renters relocate, reimburse people for repairs, support flood mitigation measures for public housing and assist local governments.
The grant prioritizes historically underserved communities and aims to address climate change.
Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy says the village has too many low-income residents unable to get out of the flood zone.
"There's real action and the tragedy that happened on September 1; the silver lining is that it really spurred people to take action," said Murphy.
A written public comment period for residents to provide feedback on the plan is open from now until Sept. 28. The state is also holding a pair of hearings, one at New Rochelle City Hall on Sept. 8 and virtually on Sept. 13.
