New York City’s Action Plan for Disaster Recovery, released in draft form in late March, allocates $1.77 billion in federal Sandy funds. The federal money comes with standards that require the City to account for how its housing and recovery plans will support displaced residents. This report from the Alliance for a Just Rebuilding identifies a series of major flaws in the City’s Action Plan, and proposes solutions that will help ensure a just and equitable rebuilding for all New Yorkers. It gathers together the most up-to-date evidence, data, and analysis to highlight previously underreported weaknesses in the City’s disaster response after Sandy. And it offers a series of policy recommendations for the Bloomberg administration and 2013 mayoral candidates to adopt.
