  1. Thanks for providing the additional information. Seems to be that you point out an issued that should be studied. I hope some young researchers out there will track the change.

  2. The CRZ or Preparation of a Cummunity Reconstruction Zone Plan seems to be New York State’s compliance with the National Disaster Recovery Framework. It explains why the governor and HUD recently offered up to $31k for individual assistance when the summer flooding did not provide individual assistance as part of a Presidential declaration (just for public assistance). This appears to be a shift from federal funding to state funding for disaster relief and recovery. The stipulations the NYS governor put on funding is a bit restrictive. A recipient of individual assistance must remain in the affected residence for three years following receipt of funds, purchase flood insurance (regardless of cost), among other stipulations. Are we seeing a return to local control and pressure on home and business owners to be more careful when selecting a location for building?
