In the Wash Post today, there is a profile of the woman who coordinated the HUD recovery efforts for H. Sandy. I have to say, she surely has been low profile to date; I tracked the Sandy Task Force effort closely and never heard her name mentioned.
See: HUD Official Coordinated Hurricane Sandy Recovery Aid. Some excerpts:
While the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) oversaw the initial response to the storm, the White House created the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force several months later to provide government-wide coordination of the numerous federal agencies assisting the affected states and localities and dispensing the nearly $50 billion appropriated by Congress for disaster recovery.
Marion Mollegen McFadden, the chief operating officer and later acting executive director of the recovery task force, led the ambitious interagency effort, harnessing the power of the federal government during an intense 10-month period to provide unified support to the hard-hit communities as they were making decisions about their rebuilding efforts.
In my view, what remains is a full and current accounting of how the 69 recommendations of the Task Force are being implemented!
HUD does maintain this site for info re the recovery process, but it is not very current.
