If you are a New York State licensed and insured contractor and you want to register to partner with the city on their Hurricane Sandy Rapid Repairs program follow this link.
Once you are registered, you’ll be entered into the Rapid Repair system as a contractor available to perform assessments and repairs on red, green and yellow placard properties; or properties affected by Sandy without any placards whose owners have also registered for the program.
According to Bloomberg’s announcement, “contractors will be given responsibility for an area hard hit by Sandy.” This approach will allow for streamlined FEMA payments to contractors, sub-contractors, carpenters, plumbers, etc.
Homeowners can apply at one of the city’s restoration centers, which can be found at nyc.gov or by calling 311. A FEMA ID is required for the program, and those are available at DisasterAssistance.gov
