On October 29th, Mayor de Blasio announced that the Build it Back single family program will be complete by the end of 2016. To meet this goal, all applicants’ current selected pathways will be considered final as of December 31, 2015.
We are in position to move all applicants forward with their selected option – and complete the program by the end of 2016 – because of significant outreach and casework through the summer and fall. We appreciate your responsiveness!
We also broadened our options offered to include a Direct Grant program, a discretionary elevation program, and an additional City-managed acquisition program, which helped meet applicant needs.
As of January 1, 2016, applicants will no longer be able to move between pathways to help ensure Build it Back can complete the program by the end of 2016.
