Housing Recovery Office (HRO)


The NYC Mayor's Office of Housing Recovery Operations, including the Build it Back Program, is dedicated to helping New Yorkers living in communities affected by Hurricane Sandy rebuild their homes and get their lives back to normal. The Director of the Housing Recovery Office (HRO) will assist homeowners, landlords, and tenants affected by Hurricane Sandy within all five boroughs of New York City. The Program consists of multiple pathways, including: repair, repair with elevation, or rebuilding of damaged homes; reimbursement for repair work already carried out; and acquisition of damaged homes and will work to provide local employment options throughout the process.
