(Chapter 7)

We established The NRF in response to the concerns raised by community leaders who met in lower Manhattan following Super storm Sandy.  This hurricane devastated much of the coastal sections of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island on September 29, 2012.

Among our objectives at The NRF was to develop and advocate for large-scale financing to meet the scale of resiliency infrastructure needed to “protect, enhance and preserve” the homes where residents live, the offices operated by businesses and the delivery of essential public services to them both.
