Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Howard Beach) recently announced that representatives with Neighborhood Housing Services of Queens are now available every Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., at her Howard Beach district office on Cross Bay Boulevard.
Neighborhood Housing Services of Queens CDC, Inc. is a non-profit organization that helps low-to-moderate income families continue to live in the World’s Borough by sustainably achieving or preserving homeownership. According to Pheffer Amato, the NHSQ staffers will be on-hand to advise FloodHelpNY enrollees, and enroll homeowners in the FloodHelpNY program.
FloodHelpNY provides the enrolled homeowners, after a property audit, with a free elevation certificate (which may reduce flood insurance premiums), and subsequent counseling.
Additionally, NHSQ has organized the free Flood Resiliency Resource Expo/How to be Prepared Fair on Saturday, Aug. 26, 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., at Our Lady of Grace Church, located at 100-05 159th Ave. To make a reservation, call (718) 457-1017.
Pheffer Amato noted that NHSQ reps are available Wednesdays by appointment only. Call (718) 641-8755 to set up a meeting. The assemblywoman’s Howard Beach office is located at 162-38 Cross Bay Blvd.
