In October 2022, Governor Kathy Hochul announced the creation of the permanent Office of Resilient Homes and Communities (RHC), which assumed the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery’s (GOSR) portfolio. GOSR was established as a temporary agency in 2013 to coordinate statewide recovery efforts for Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and Tropical Storm Lee. More recently, the agency is also coordinating recovery and resiliency efforts for Hurricane Ida.
RHC is also partnering with the State's disaster-response agencies to lead New York’s nation-leading recovery and resiliency efforts and to develop a pipeline of resiliency initiatives and strategies across the State. Read more about the transition here.
A new website will be launched later this year.
