New Yorkers living and working in communities affected by Hurricane Sandy continue to face many challenges as they rebuild their homes, restore their businesses and get their lives back to normal.
On January 29, 2013, President Obama signed into law the "Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013" (Public Law 113-2) which provides $16 billion in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to repair and restore areas affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The City's approved CDBG-DR Action Plan details how the City plans to spend the $3.22 billion grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for eligible Hurricane Sandy disaster recovery and rebuilding activities. The City has received a third allocation of $994,056,000, bringing the City’s total allocation to $4,213,876,000. The City has published its proposed Amendment 8 to its Action Plan for review and comment detailing how the third allocation will be used. The comment period is currently open. Comments must be received no later than Monday, January 19, 2015 at 11:59 PM (EST). After the comment period, the City will review and respond to comments and submit its Action Plan incorporating Amendment 8 to HUD for approval.
The Action Plan, including any amendments, describes how the City will use this funding to help New Yorkers rebuild their homes, businesses, and communities and addresses housing, business, infrastructure, and resiliency programs.
