New Program to Assist Single-Family Homeowners Impacted by Hurricane Sandy
The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, the Mayor's Office of Housing Recovery Operations, and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) announced the new NRNYC Home Repair Program to assist single-family homeowners impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The program will be managed by Neighborhood Revitalization NYC (NRNYC), an affiliate of LISC, and will assist lower-income New Yorkers who may not be eligible for the City's Build it Back program. The program will provide homeowners with a range of structural and non-structural repairs for homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy through $15 million in privately raised funds from the Mayor's Fund and additional support from the Robin Hood Foundation, the American Red Cross and JPMorgan Chase. Work in this new program will begin immediately, with about a dozen homes currently being assessed for repairs.
