LINDENHURST - The American Red Cross announced today that it's awarding more than $2 million in grant money to two nonprofit agencies to help local Superstorm Sandy victims get back on their feet.

The Red Cross says the money will go to the United Way's disaster case management, and to a massive mold cleanup program for homeowners. With the grant money, the Red Cross says it hopes to help clean about 325 homes on Long Island.

It's welcome news for the scores of Sandy victims who are still struggling. Officials estimate that possibly half of all Sandy victims are not getting the help that they need.

Aid workers say people who have questions regarding Sandy aid should call 211 to speak to a counselor.
