Doug O’Grady recently founded the Mohawk Avenue Saint Foundation to help Sandy victims.

“Years from now, I want to keep doing this for other victims of disasters, natural or manmade,” he said. “Right now, I want to start small and do five houses right away, get them paid and their contractors paid.”

Save the date!

The “Raise the Roof” fundraiser will kick off the Mohawk Avenue Saint Foundation initiative, an event featuring comedian Jon Pizzi, music by Jahstix with Mystic and the Long Beach All Stars, and a raffle drawing. The event will take place on May 16, from 7 to 11 p.m., at Bridgeview Yacht Club. Tickets are $125 per person, $225 per couple or $1,100 for a table of 10. For tickets, call Debora at (631) 991-5990 or purchase online through Mohawkavenuesaintfoundation.org.

How does one get a grant of 5k?

Is it income based? Is it for folks with flood insurance? Is it for folks without flood insurance? Is it only for primary homes? Does it cover things not covered by FEMA/NYS rising?

What towns does it cover. Do you need to max out on your FEMA $31,900 amount to qualify.

Do you need receipts, does work have to be done by licensed contractors?

Mucking out mold with volunteers is different than asking folks to give you cash and then give out that cash.

I love that he is doing this!!!! I would like to donate some money, but oddly I also need a grant. Either way I would like more info before I donate or try to get the grant. My boiler/oil tank was oddly not covered at all by FEMA. I appealed but since I already max out my FEMA award I was denied. Does that mean I can get 5k automatically?
