(Formerly known as Community Reconstruction Zones)

What is the NY Rising Communities Reconstruction Program?

The NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program is a community driven initiative that will empower localities severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, or Tropical Storm Lee to develop comprehensive and innovative recovery plans.

Over the course of eight months each community will develop a comprehensive recovery that increases resilience and economic development, and positions the community to most effectively use implementation funds.
