100+ Sandy Survivors Assisted in Relocating out of Floodplain


Capital Access has helped the New York City Build It Back (BIB) program reach the milestone of assisting 100 homeowners who suffered substantial storm damage move from harm’s way to safer ground.

These homeowners voluntarily chose to leave their homes because of the risks and stresses of repeat storm damage.  Capital Access helped them get fair compensation for their homes and assistance with securing safe and affordable relocation housing through the NYC BIB Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery assistance.

Capital Access continues to play an instrumental role in providing case management support to homeowners and expertise to the BIB Program with the administration of the Acquisition and Buyout Program.

Across the country, disasters are hitting communities with more frequency and fury. Areas that suffer repeat storm damage present safety risks, cause stress for residents and burden emergency services. That is why Capital Access provides a full range of Buyout and Relocation program management services with an approach that focuses on quality, expedient service delivery in a cost reasonable manner.
