NY Rising proposals from Long Island

The NY Rising Community Reconstruction program asked local planning committees around the state for "recovery and resiliency strategies" after serious storms - Sandy and Irene - that led to proposals based on those strategies. Here are the proposals from 21 Long Island committees as of the spring of 2014. Each local planning group is eligible for between $3 million and $25 million in Community Development Block Grants.

The projects listed are divided into three categories. Proposed Projects are those eligible for funding through the block grants. Featured Projects are those identified by the local planning committees as being important resiliency recommendations but are not proposed for funding through the state program. "Additional Resiliency Recommendations" also not competing for NY Rising funding but are projects the planning committees would like to highlight.

You can also see which post-Sandy proposals got state funding as of October 2014.
