Queens Congresswoman town hall walks New Yorkers through FEMA assistance application process

During a virtual town hall hosted by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representative walked individuals through the application process for disaster relief. 

The remnants of Hurricane Ida tore through the Northeast, killing 13 people in New York City, 11 of which were people living in Queens basement homes. Bryon Boka, an individual assistance program specialist at FEMA, attended the town hall to speak about rental assistance and answer any questions from the congresswoman’s constituents.
