Sandy Action Plan

Action Plan Overview

Recipients of CDBG-DR funding must develop and publish an Action Plan describing how its awards from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be used to support short- and long-term recovery efforts and build resiliency to the challenges of climate change. Separately, recipients of CDBG-NDR funding must also develop and publish an Action Plan describing how its award through the National Disaster Resiliency Competition will advance specific resiliency projects.

Sandy Action Plan

The CDBG-DR Action Plan identifies and describes programs to build and support housing, businesses, coastal resiliency, infrastructure, and other City services. In total, the City's CDBG-DR allocation amounts to $4,213,876,000.

In addition, the City is the recipient of an $176 million award from The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s National Disaster Resiliency (NDR) Competition.  You can read more about the City’s NDR award by visiting our National Disaster Resiliency page.

Action Plan Amendments

Amendments serve as a way to adjust both the CDBG-DR and CDBG-NDR Action Plans in order to add or clarify information, change or add additional Programs or program benefits, or to reduce, increase, or reallocate funding, as appropriate. Amendments are divided into two categories, Substantial and Technical.

The City published non-substantial amendment 24 (APA 24) to the Hurricane Sandy CDBG-DR Action Plan on July 27th, 2021. HUD approved APA 24 on November 10th, 2022. For more information on amendments, visit the Sandy Action Plan Amendment page.

Substantial Amendments

They are characterized by either an addition or deletion of any CDBG-DR or CDBG-NDR funded program, any funding change greater than $1 million, or any change in the designated beneficiaries of a program in the relevant Action Plan. Substantial amendments will be available on this site for public review and comment for at least 30 days. In addition, the City will hold at least one public hearing during the public comment period to incorporate public input into any proposed changes.

Non-Substantial Amendments

They are defined as minor changes that do not materially alter the activities or eligible beneficiaries. Technical Amendments are not subject to the public notification and public comment requirements.
