Oct 24, 2023

Today, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced $1,216,482.39 in federal funding to reimburse the Village of Port Chester for the repair and replacement of roads damaged as a result of Hurricane Ida. Remnants of Hurricane Ida created high velocity flood and heavy rains that caused significant damages to Port Chester’s roads and sidewalks, including Glen Avenue. This funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and will reimburse Port Chester for work completed on Glen Avenue in response to the damages.

“Following Hurricane Ida in 2021, the Village of Port Chester stepped up and completed critically needed work to repair damaged roads, including extensive work along Glen Avenue,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I am excited to announce this funding, which will finally reimburse Port Chester for these crucial efforts, and I will continue to fight for funding to support municipalities and their responses to natural disasters across New York State.”
