NYC Establishes “Restoration Centers” Providing Recovery Assistance To Sandy Victims

NYC Restoration Centers

Looking for that centralized place to take care of various Hurricane Sandy-related claims, get some advice, sign up for food assistance, streamline repairs to your home and to recover lost personal records? New York City is opening for “restoration centers” throughout the city today, with counselors to help guide you through the various agencies and processes to get back on your feet after the storm.

NYC Restore helps New Yorkers in the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy get access to important information and services to help them recover. Four NYC Restoration Centers provide the following types of assistance:

  • NYC Rapid Repairs
  • Food and Nutrition Assistance
  • Temporary Housing Information
  • Health and Medical Benefits
  • Business Restoration
  • Counseling Services
  • Financial Assistance
  • Personal Records and Information

NYC Rapid Repairs is a new program to send teams of contractors and city inspectors to neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Sandy to quickly repair damaged homes. It’s meant to streamline the process of finding a contractor, getting the work done, and paying him with FEMA reimbursement funds. More information can be found here.

NYC Restoration Centers are open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
