Who We Are

Rebuild by Design began as a competition seeking to address the structural and social vulnerabilities exposed by Superstorm Sandy. It has connected the talent of the world with the talent of the region to propose innovative and implementable large-scale, design-driven infrastructure solutions. As a result of Rebuild by Design, HUD has awarded $930 million towards making these projects a reality.

Now, Rebuild by Design is working to assist in the implementation of these designs, advocating for needed policy changes, continuing its research initiatives and engaging the its community coalitions, while working towards replicating solutions to ensure resiliency in the Sandy region and beyond.
