Purpose

Informational Sessions Designed to Gauge Interest and Answer Questions about Specific Short-to-Long Term Housing Solutions for Islanders Displaced by Sandy

NYC Housing Recovery today announced “Housing Weekend” this Saturday and Sunday at the NYC Restoration Center on Staten Island, a series of informational sessions to gauge interest and answer questions about specific housing solutions for residents displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

Residents in in need of housing – whether immediate or long term, renters or homeowners – are encouraged to visit the Restoration Center between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and speak with members of the NYC Housing Recovery team and Housing Preservation and Development who are working directly on post-Sandy housing issues. They can also fill out a short survey that will help NYC Housing Recovery match their needs, or take advantage of a myriad of other services available at the Restoration Center, including Rapid Repairs, a free program that completes necessary repairs to get residents back in their homes again. 

(Note: These sessions will not affect normal Restoration Center services or hours, which are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
