NEW YORK (PIX11) – Some good news Wednesday for New Yorkers still picking up the pieces from super storm Sandy — more money is on the way.

The American Red Cross is donating nearly $3 million to victims who have damages that other emergency funds do not cover.

The grant was given to the New York disaster interfaith services and will set up a long-term recovery resource for needs that have not been met.

It will also give many families a chance to become self-sufficient once again.
