Hurricane Sandy

2014 Rebuild Environment – NYC Voluntary Rebuild Capacity AssessmentThis survey was conducted by the Voluntary Organization Needs Assessment (VONA) Subcommittee of the New York City Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NYC VOAD) Volunteer Management and Construction Committee. The Subcommittee’s purpose was to gain a greater understanding of the capacity of voluntary rebuild organizations in New York City. The results of this survey highlight the complex environment that rebuild organizations must function within; not the least of which are local laws and public policies that, in and of themselves, are necessary for public safety.  (Adapted from Page 2 of this report in subtitle “Introduction”)
