Mold remains a problem after Sandy
Mold-infested homes and businesses are still a problem months after superstorm Sandy inundated the East Coast. A $15 million public-private partnership aims to offset remediation expenses for 2,000 New York City homes, and some are calling for part of the $50.5 billion federal aid package to be earmarked for mold-eradication efforts. Mold, which poses health problems and can put residents out of their homes for days during remediation, is not specifically covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or a New York City emergency-repair program.
