Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new home raising program available for Long Island residents recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

Cuomo was in Freeport when he announced the optional elevation program.

He says the state government will fund the elevation of a home if it is located in a flood area or if it is designated to qualify by FEMA. About 6,500 homes are eligible for the program.
