Target Areas are locations that:

  • Sustained physical damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy; or
  • Were located in the area inundated by Superstorm Sandy and can demonstrate direct or indirect impact from the storm; or
  • Sustained a loss of power or utility service as a result of Superstorm Sandy; or
  • Are located within the 100-year floodplain as shown on the most recent FEMA maps and are therefore evaluating whether to continue or expand operations

Eligible projects that demonstrated a benefit to small businesses that incurred extensive physical damages as a result of the storm were given preference, at the discretion of NYCEDC and the City.
