New York City Rapid Home Repair Program Seeks Contractors

NYC Rapid Repairs sends teams of contractors and inspectors into Sandy-damaged neighborhoods in partnership with FEMA to repair homes

Contractors can now register online for New York City’s rapid repairs program that will help homeowners rebuild after Superstorm Sandy. 

The program, called NYC Rapid Repairs, sends teams of contractors and inspectors into neighborhoods with damage in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Unlike the typical FEMA process where homeowners hire contractors individually, owners who sign up for the program at will be served by teams working their way through the city by geographical area.

The Building Trades Employers Association of New York City is helping to reach out to contractors and suppliers by hosting a registration form on its website. Interested contractors also have to register with the FEMA Disaster Response Registry’s System for Award Management. They also must complete the FEMA Vendor Profile Form. Contact the Industry Liaison Support Center at for this form or call 206-646-1895.
