The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it is extending for a month a program providing temporary housing to New Yorkers displaced by Sandy.
 
The agency says the program, which provides hotel or motel rooms to FEMA applicants whose homes were damaged by the storm, will now extend to Dec. 14.

  The program began Nov. 3 and was originally scheduled to require checkouts on Saturday.
 
The agency said it acted on a request by the state of New York. FEMA says numbers to help New Yorkers eligible for transitional sheltering assistance find a hotel are 866-863-8673 or 1-800-462-7585. Phone lines are open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
 
New Yorkers can register for FEMA assistance online at www.disasterassistance.gov or can call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).
