The Mental Health and Spiritual Care Committee of the Brooklyn Long Term Recovery Group is currently compiling a referral list for mental health and social service providers working in Sandy-affected areas of Brooklyn. With this in mind, we are asking mental health, emotional care, and social service providers to fill out this survey about their organizations and services (if you would like to be included on the referral list): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/175LOSburBhox-CHiLA2fCk8cpCU3GEc-aNc-nMf6Ijc/viewform
Once compiled, this referral list will be distributed amongst Disaster Case Managers and other front line service providers. We will also be putting together a flyer for the public from this information.
If you have questions or comments, please contact Jeff Mathias at email@example.com
Hope all is well,
The Mental Health and Spiritual Committee

The U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday evening passed legislation to curb some of the premium increases in the nation’s flood insurance program that have been causing “sticker shock” for property owners.
H.R. 3370, the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, sponsored by Reps. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), passed 306-91 under a “suspension of the rules” requiring a two-thirds vote in favor. The measure reverses some of the changes to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) introduced by the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012.
