Canarsie Pier

Canarsie community development incorporated (ccdi)

In October 2012, the Canarsie community was devastated by Super Storm Sandy. The community was neither prepared nor organized to respond to this disaster.  In March 2014 through the NY Rising Program, Canarsie was awarded $11.9M by the NYS Rising Committee for recovery projects.  A committee comprised of community leaders was formed to propose projects for the recovery of Canarsie. This committee proposed projects totaling $18.8M dollars of which $12M dollars were funded.

Canarsie Community Development Incorporated (CCDI) was formed by five members of that NY Rising committee to give a voice to the residents of Canarsie, and to help them prepare for any future disasters. Two of the goals of CCDI are, with the involvement and participation of community residents, to monitor the NY Rising projects that were funded through to completion; and to raise the additional $7M for the other projects, through government and private funding.
