The New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program has been established to provide additional rebuilding and revitalization assistance to Communities severely damaged by Hurricanes Sandy and Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. To facilitate community redevelopment planning and the resilience of Communities, the State has established the New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program and has allocated $25 million for planning in the most affected communities.
Later allocations of funds will be used to support the implementation of projects and activities identified in the plans that the identified communities will produce.
