After the extreme rain event our region experienced this past Friday, September 29, New York State, in collaboration with affected counties, has developed an online form allowing residents to self-report damages to their homes and/or businesses. Self-reported information that is collected through the survey will be coordinated with the Initial Damage Assessment that is being prepared by the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. The Initial Damage Assessment is a step in the data-driven decision making process for the federal government to determine the magnitude of the situation, and ultimately decide if federal recovery assistance is needed.
Residents and business owners may self-report damages through the Self-Report Damage Survey. This survey is NOT an application for relief.
