Minimum Program Standards

The purpose of the Minimum Program Standards (“MPS”) is to establish baseline construction standards, materials, and processes that the NYC Build It Back Program will look to as a baseline in preparing and reviewing completed scopes of work for homes receiving program assistance. Please note that there will be differences in the scope for substantially damaged and non-substantially damaged homes. The MPS are designed to assist in achieving consistency throughout rehabilitation activities funded with CDBG Disaster Recovery Funds. By utilizing the Minimum Program Standards as a guideline, the Program ensures that all applicants receive an equal assessment. As with the program’s Policy Manual, case-specific determinations may be maderegarding the MPS as needed.
