About NYC Recovery

In total, Congress allocated nearly $50 billion to fund recovery efforts for Hurricane Sandy. A significant portion of this $50 million is being used to implement projects in New York City from various Federal sources and carried out by Federal, State, and local entities.

In addition to the $4.2 billion in CDBG-DR funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City administers an award of $176 million from HUD for the National Disaster Resiliency Competition.

Separately, the City administers $9.2 billion from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and $700 million from other sources to reimburse costs for emergency response, debris removal and repairing or rebuilding damaged public facilities. You can track the City's use of these funds by visiting Sandy Funding Tracker.
