STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Repairs to storm-damaged homes throughout Staten Island could begin as early as next week under a first-of-its-kind, one-stop rebuilding program announced Friday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The program, called NYC Rapid Repairs, would send teams of approved licensed contractors and city inspectors into Sandy-damaged neighborhoods as early as Tuesday. The teams would go block by block, assessing damage and making repairs at the same time, saving homeowners the headache of having to find and hire various contractors themselves.

Beginning Tuesday, homeowners will be able sign up for NYC Rapid Repairs by going to or by calling 311. They will need a FEMA ID number, which they can get by registering at or by calling 1-800-621-3362, or registering in person at one of the five Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) sites on the Island: at Mount Loretto in Tottenville; Miller Field in New Dorp; Father Capodanno Boulevard at Hunter Avenue in Midland Beach and two new sites added, at Mount Manressa, Fort Wadsworth, and Borough Hall, St. George.

“We’ve come up with an innovative and unprecedented way to bring government resources to bear on this recovery effort.”

The Rapid Repairs teams will work closely with City agencies, including the Department of Buildings and Department of Housing Preservation and Development, to make sure that any necessary inspections and certifications are done as quickly as possible. The mayor made the announcement at a City Hall press briefing.

Normally, he said, homeowners with storm damage are left to “fend for themselves” to arrange for contractors to make repairs. “Finding a contractor, even in an ideal situation, can be a daunting task. We’re changing the game,” he said.

“In the neighborhoods hardest hit by Sandy, homeowners need help fixing their homes – and they need it now,” the mayor continued. “We’ve come up with an innovative and unprecedented way to bring government resources to bear on this recovery effort.”

Mayor Bloomberg said repairs will begin first on blocks where electrical power has been restored to the entire block. Homes must be tagged with either green, yellow, or red sticker. Repairs will first be made to homes that have been deemed structurally sound and tagged with a green placard, although homeowners with yellow or red stickers can still apply for the program. He urged homeowners to ask about the program on their block, and sign up with FEMA.

The program is free to homeowners; Bloomberg said the cost of the program and repairs will be picked up by FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Administration.

Helping those who lost property via Hurricane Sandy

If you have a client who lost their home because of Hurricane Sandy, most likely they also lost pictures of their home as well.

You can help with the insurance by going into the “SOLD” file, or if you saved pictures on your computer, and print them out for them.

My daughter is one of them.  So I’m printing the photos of inside the house before she bought it.  Now the adjuster can see what the house looked like before the storm.  We know what it looks like now, so go into the MLS sold file and print.
