The New York City Housing Authority is getting federal aid that will allow it to hire hundreds of new workers.

The housing authority said it received a $7.1 million grant from the United States Department of Labor that will fund about 400 temporary jobs focused on Hurricane Sandy recovery.

New Yorkers who lost their jobs as a result of the hurricane will get priority in the hiring process, as will people who have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks.

Jobs available will range from caretaker to community assistant.

The New York City Department of Small Business Services will assist in the hiring.
