The American Red Cross says it has awarded $2.35 million in grants for Sandy relief on Long Island.

The Community Development Corporation of Long Island, LLC, is getting $2 million.

It will distribute the money to 325 households on Long Island that were flooded by Sandy and are now in need of mold remediation.

The Red Cross also is giving a $350,000 grant to the United Way of Long Island.

The United Way will use the money for sub-grants to community groups. The organizations will provide assistance with housing, social services and other support projects.

The Red Cross says it has received $308 million in donations for Sandy emergency relief and recovery efforts.

As of Sept. 30, it says $280 million, or more than 90 percent, has been distributed.
