The New York City Sandy Unmet Needs Roundtable was established as a resource of last resort for eligible residents impacted by Superstorm Sandy throughout New York City’s five boroughs. It will provide several forms of assistance, including emergency cash grants, sustainable recovery grants, loans and discounted, tax-free appliances, furniture and building supplies, through a partnership with Home Depot. In addition to the Red Cross grant, the United Way of New York City has provided a leadership grant to fund staff as well as cash assistance for the Unmet Needs Fund; these monies were awarded to NYDIS from the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund. NYDIS has also received funding for the New York City Sandy Unmet Needs Fund from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, International Orthodox Christian Charities, Islamic Relief USA, Lutheran Social Services of New York Metro Baptist Church and others. The Salvation Army has also partnered with NYDIS to directly distribute its own unmet needs funds via the New York City Sandy Unmet Needs Roundtable.
