NYDIS/OEM End Preparedness Month with Flood Map Letter to Congregations
On September 30th, NYDIS and the NYC Office of Emergency Management (OEM) partnered to geo-code all NYC houses of worship in NYDIS's HOWCALM System (web-based database of all NYC congregations, religious schools and Faith-based Social Service Providers). Those geo-coded locations were compared to the new federal flood maps identifying 1249 congregations within flood zones 1-6. Those 1249 congregations were then mailed letters from NYDIS and OEM alerting them to their flooding vulnerability. The mailing also included the NYC Hurricane Guide and evacuation zones as well as several Disaster Tip Sheets for U.S. Religious Leaders on topics like Evacuation Planning and Continuity of Operations Planning for congregations.

NYDIS Helps Superstorm Sandy Victims Still in City Hotels
NYDIS has partnered with the Legal Aid Society to help eligible Sandy families extend their hotel stays via the NYC Sandy Unmet Needs Roundtable. Nearly 340 residents displaced by Sandy a year ago were residing in hotels as of October 4. Through the Roundtable, NYDIS took over paying for hotel stays for 102 families (222 people). These families had viable housing plans and simply needed a little more time to secure long term or permanent housing. NYDIS is grateful that the American Red Cross contributed $1,150,000 to support a portion of the total hotel costs. Since October 5, over 20 of these families have already moved out of the hotels and into permanent housing.
