New Yorkers displaced from their homes by Hurricane Sandy can stay at their Federal Emergency Management Agency-sponsored housing longer.

The government approved another 30-day extension for the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program.

Eligible victims who cannot return home can now stay at participating hotels or motels until August 6.

The move-out date had been set for July 7.

To register for housing assistance, victims must first apply for FEMA online at disasterassistance.gov or call 800-621-FEMA.
