Hurricane Sandy rebuilding strategy: stronger communities, a resilient region

Source(s):  U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

This document presents the policy recommendations of the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force for helping the rebuilding of the region affected by the 2011 super-storm. The recommendations include: (i) promoting resilient rebuilding, (ii) ensuring a regionally coordinated, resilient approach to infrastructure investment; (iii) providing families safe, affordable housing options; iv) supporting small businesses and revitalizing local economies; (v) addressing insurance challenges (vi) building local governments’ capacity to plan for long-term rebuilding and prepare for future disasters.

In addition, the strategy establishes guidelines for the investment of the federal funds made available for recovery and sets the region on the path to being built back smarter and stronger with several outcomes in mind: (i) aligning federal funding with local rebuilding visions; (ii) cutting red tape (iii) coordinate the efforts of the federal, state, and local governments, with a region-wide approach to rebuilding; (iv) ensuring the region’s climate change and disaster resilient rebuilding.
