The Opening of NYC Restoration Centers

On Tuesday November 13, 2012, Mayor Bloomberg launched NYC Restore, a comprehensive new initiative to provide one-stop locations for city recovery services and federal disaster relief. NYC Restore centers provide residents and businesses impacted by Hurricane Sandy with financial, health, environmental, nutritional and residential services, as well as Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) reimbursement processing.

The initiative consists of seven NYC Restoration Centers, accessible, neighborhood offices located in the communities that were hit the hardest to provide long-term assistance to New Yorkers. The centers located in Far Rockaway, Breezy Point, Red Hook, Gravesend, Coney Island and Staten Island are currently open, while the Center at Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay will open later in the week.

The Restoration Centers bring together information and referral to all of the City government services available in the aftermath of the storm. FEMA staff is onsite to perform benefits intake, as well as provide ongoing management and updates of applicants’ FEMA cases.

NYC Restoration Centers are open from 8 AM – 8 PM daily
