NYC Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency
Welcome to NYC Special Initiative for
Rebuilding and Resiliency

In December 2012, the Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR) convened to address the creation of a more resilient New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, with a long-term focus on preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change. A final report, released in June 2013, presents  actionable recommendations both for rebuilding the communities impacted by Sandy and increasing the resilience of infrastructure and buildings citywide.

If you are in need of immediate recovery assistance or looking for information on the City’s plan for federal relief, please go to www.nyc.gov/recovery.
