The first infusion of FEMA Sandy funding went directly to the city but the second wave is expected to be funneled through the state.
Sources have told the Advance that the Staten Island city Restoration Centers will be shuttered when the state takes control.


Spencer noted that Catholic Charities already has staff at the Restoration Centers, and that agency, as well as other non-profits, already provides casework services for Sandy victims across the city. Spencer added that "the Restoration Centers are not meant to be permanent" and any potential decision about shuttering them will be based on need. Catholic Charities, Spencer said, is in negotiations to be the managing agent for the state's Long Term Disaster Case Management contract, which hasn't been finalized.
The plan is for Catholic Charities to oversee the long-term relief efforts with a number of other local human service providers throughout the city, Long Island and other counties throughout the state impacted by Sandy.
I think this will be excellent for the sake of people who need long-term help." Catholic Charities is poised to partner with about 10 or 15 different non-profit organizations that have experience in providing long-term disaster case management. For example, if a client needed food and or housing information, the long term disaster case management provider would guide him or her to various city agencies or other resources and follow up to make sure that they were received, Spencer explained.
