Call for Volunteers - Storm IDA (DFS)

As you know, the downstate region sustained significant damage from the past week’s storm leaving many New Yorkers with considerable losses and in need of our help. The Department of Financial Services (DFS) has set up sites in damaged neighborhoods to assist residents in accessing insurance coverage and answering questions. They need to add capacity for this mission and require additional staff from State-based employers.

CUNY is in need of Volunteers for staffing support at locations in NYC, Long Island, and Westchester. Full-time CUNY employees who are interested in volunteering will be paid their regular pay. Staff should be comfortable interacting with the public and assisting with paperwork. The ability to communicate in a foreign language would be a plus.

Please review the attached FAQs for more information.

Thank you for your support during this critical time within our communities,
