On November 25, 2013, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a supplemental allocation of $2,097,000,000 of Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to support the State of New York’s continued recovery efforts from Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. HUD requires that grantees create an Action Plan that documents the proposed use of funds and publish it for public input. The Superstorm Sandy Action Plan includes investments in housing, economic development, infrastructure, and NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program activities. Prior to releasing the supplemental allocation, HUD approved the State’s initial Superstorm Sandy Action Plan for $1,713,960,000 on April 25, 2013. On May 24, 2022, HUD published a Federal Register Notice outlining that the State of New York will receive $41,262,000 in funding to support long-term recovery efforts following the destructive flooding caused by Hurricane Ida. HUD approved the State’s Initial Hurricane Ida Action Plan on November 28, 2022. The Hurricane Ida Action Plan includes investments in housing and infrastructure through programs designed to assist communities in recovering, rebuilding, and increasing resilience after Hurricane Ida.
