Hurricane Sandy Recovery


The City of New York faced tremendous losses after Hurricane Sandy. While there are many federal programs to provide assistance, city officials unfamiliar with FEMA and HUD’s conservative reimbursement policies and grant application processes were at a disadvantage to secure the maximum amount of funding for Hurricane Sandy Recovery.


The City of New York (as determined by the Office of Management and Budget, or OMB), its individual agencies, and related organizations needed strategic assistance managing the city’s claims development and administration under federal disaster programs related to Hurricane Sandy.


Hagerty is providing expert guidance to its clients relating to the FEMA Public Assistance (PA) program, the FEMA 404 Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), and the HUD Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program. Hagerty is also providing grant accounting and administrative support on an as needed basis to city agencies and organizations with regard to disaster grants and the city projects and programs they support.
