GJNY Launches Eye on Hurricane Sandy Money database
Today, Good Jobs New York launched our Eye on Hurricane Sandy Money database to help boost transparency about how much and which government agencies have allocated Hurricane Sandy funds in New York City. The database will be a useful a tool for many New Yorkers including those working at community-based organizations, elected officials, journalists and anyone advocating for a fair and equitable rebuilding.
