The Federal Emergency Management Agency is advising residents who receive money for Hurricane Sandy related damage to keep their receipts for three years – in case they are audited.

The receipts will demonstrate they used the money for disaster related repairs. This includes receipts from contracts, construction materials, hotel rooms, rent, replacing property and moving and storage expenses, among other things.
