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 CDBG-DR Action Plan was approved by HUD on May 7, 2013. The plan details how the City plans to spend the $4.2 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 resiliency programs.
