On January 22, 2016, Mayor de Blasio announced that New York City was awarded a $176 million grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) through the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC).
The funds awarded from the competition, which are distinct from the $4.21 billion in Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds already allocated to the City, will be directed towards the completion of the Two Bridges resiliency project.
Two Bridges will protect one of the most vulnerable communities in Lower Manhattan (which extends from Montgomery Street in the north to the Brooklyn Bridge in the south) by boosting economic and climate change resiliency efforts along the waterfront.
This website includes information about the competition, the City's National Disaster Resilience Action Plan, and HUD Quarterly Performance Reports.
