NYC Recovery: Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery

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 $4.21 billion grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for eligible Hurricane Sandy disaster recovery and rebuilding activities.

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 coastal resiliency programs.

On January 21, 2016, HUD announced that the City was awarded an additional $176 million through the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC) to fund portions of the Lower Manhattan Protect and Connect project proposed in its NDRC application.

Of the $4.21 billion, a specific Rebuild by Design grant of $335 million was designated for an integrated flood protection system that is referred to as the East Side Coastal Resiliency (ESCR) Project.

Pursuant to the Federal Register Notice published on October 16, 2014, the East Side Coastal Resiliency project requires its own substantial amendment and such amendment will be available for review by the public and approval by HUD.
