NEW YORK (AP) — A year after Superstorm Sandy, thousands of people are still trying to fix their wrecked homes.

Billions of dollars in federal aid appropriated months ago by Congress have yet to reach homeowners who desperately need that money to move on.
Many residents along the coasts of New York and New Jersey say they still haven't figured out how to pay to reconstruct their houses to new flood standards.
The storm killed at least 181 people in the U.S. and did an estimated $65 billion in damage.
