Rebuilding Guidelines

Rebuilding and Repairing Resources

Homeowners have a lot to consider when deciding to repair or rebuild a home damaged by Hurricane Sandy. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the NYC Department of Buildings inspected approximately 80,000 buildings damaged by the storm.

To help individuals whose homes were damaged by the storm, below are a series of links to guides and handouts created by the Department of Buildings, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Department of Consumer Affairs, American Institute of Architects and FEMA.

The City urges homeowners who have not begun repairs on their homes to consider registering for the NYC Build it Back program as they may be eligible for federal funding to assist in the rebuilding process.
