The NYC Mayor's Office of Housing Recovery Operations and the Build It Back Program are dedicated to helping New Yorkers living in communities affected by Hurricane Sandy rebuild their homes and improve the resiliency of homes and communities.
By the end of 2016, 90 percent of program participants had received checks and/or commenced construction. In addition, 76 percent of City managed single family homes were complete.
The program's significant momentum over the past three years stems from the Mayor's overhaul of Build It Back in 2014. Details of the overhaul and the areas of progress can be found in the October 2016 Progress Update, (the initial report from April 2014 can be found here).
