State officials will be available Wednesday to assist victims of Superstorm Sandy looking to apply for recovery and aid that the federal government approved last week.

Representatives with the New York State Department of Financial Services’ Mobile Command Center will provide free help to homeowners and business owners at Southold Town Hall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We fought hard for the federal aid Long Island deserves to recover from this devastating storm, and I urge those affected to apply for the support you need for your home or business,” Congressman Tim Bishop said in a release. “Attending this session is not a requirement to access aid, however it will be especially useful for senior citizens and others who are not as comfortable using computer-based forms.”

Those impacted by the storm may also apply for recovery assistance online using this link.
