Treasury Continues to Aid Individuals and Businesses Affected by Hurricane Sandy

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 19, 2013

“The regions affected by Hurricane Sandy last fall have made great strides in their recovery but there is still more work to do. Today, President Obama’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force (Task Force) released a Rebuilding Strategy to serve as a model for communities across the nation facing risks from extreme weather and to continue helping the Sandy-affected region rebuild. The Task Force, which includes Secretary Lew, made 69 policy recommendations that will help homeowners, strengthen small businesses, and revitalize local economies.  The Rebuilding Strategy will also help protect families, small businesses and communities across the Sandy-impacted region from the risks posed by sea level rise and more extreme weather events – risks that are made worse by the reality of climate change.”
