Welcome and thank you for participating in NY Rising's Community Reconstruction Program (NYRCR) survey of Staten Island businesses. This survey will help the NYRCR Planning Team learn more about the challenges and difficulties faced by you as a local business in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and will be used to improve the State's responses to Sandy and future storms.

The Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery established the New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program to provide rebuilding and revitalization assistance to communities impacted by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, and this survey is being conducted by NYRCR Committee, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and Professor Cynthia Scarinci from the College of Staten Island.

For more information about the NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program, please visit: http://stormrecovery.ny.gov/nyrcr/

All responses to this survey will be kept confidential. Thanks again for your participation!
