NYC Rapid Repairs- Getting Residents Back in Their Homes

NYC Rapid Repairs is a city-run service designed to help home owners assess the damage on their homes, and make the necessary repairs in order to get those families back inside their homes sooner rather than later.

The home assessment is the first step in the process. It’s free, and will not affect any possible FEMA aid you may receive. The assessment will be done by licensed plumbers, electricians, and architects/engineers.

After the assessment, you can proceed in one of two ways:

  • You can choose to allow city contractors to fix the problems found in the assessment. This option can be chosen at the time of the assessment.
  • You can take the assessment and either have the issues fixed on your own, or you can contact the city at a later date to have one of their contractors do the work. For this option, you’ll have to call 311.
