Hundreds of Hurricane Sandy victims previously deemed ineligible for government reimbursement could soon be able to get some cash back.

Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer say the Housing and Urban Development agency revised some of its guidelines, and that'll allow more homeowners to be reimbursed.

The previous HUD regulations blocked the city from conducting retroactive environmental reviews on homes deemed "substantially damaged."

Without that review, homeowners would be unable to get reimbursement and would have to pay out of pocket for repairs.

The changes will allow the city to do reviews on all homes, regardless of the level of damage.
