BROOKLYN - Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced a new program with the goal to help the city's Sandy victims get back into a safe and sustainable home.

New York City Build It Back will offer assistance to homeowners, renters, and landlords whose buildings were damaged during the late October storm.

A housing recovery specialist will determine eligibility for the program after residents register for it.

The program aims to help residents repair or rebuild damaged homes, or reimburses homeowners for repairs already made since the storm.

Funding for the program comes through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
