GOWANUS - It has been nearly one year after Superstorm Sandy, and many people are still trying to rebuild.

The deadline to receive assistance from the city is 10 days away, and volunteers are going door to door in Gowanus, making sure the residents are aware.

With the help of local not-for-profit Fifth Avenue Committee, volunteers are gearing up and preparing to share information about what funding and programs are available to those still trying to recover from the storm.

A few months ago, the city announced a new program called Build it Back, which assists homeowners, landlords and renters whose primary homes were damaged by Sandy. It is intended to help those who cannot afford all the repairs they may require.
