On September 6, President Joe Biden approved major disaster declaration for New York. This allows affected individuals in Bronx, Kings, Queens, Richmond and Westchester counties to apply for federal funding. A FEMA press release stated that "assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the remnants of Hurricane Ida."
