The deadline for the city’s Build it Back program has been extended to October 31.

Build it Back, a federally-funded program to assist those whose homes, offices and other properties were damaged by Sandy, was originally set to be capped off on September 30. The extension came after a great influx of new customers over the last two weeks and as recently as last weekend, according to the Mayor’s Office of Housing Recovery Operations (HRO).

During this time, the program received more than 3,600 new registrants.

As of Tuesday, October 1, Queens homeowners and renters signed up for Build it Back totaled close to 10,000, the most in all five boroughs, said Peter Spencer of the HRO.

“With the thousands of individual complications people find themselves facing, we need a variety of resources,” said Councilmember Donovan Richards. “There is no one fix for every situation. People are still realizing the extent of the damage that Sandy has done.”
