Event description

Description

On October 29, 2012, areas in New Jersey and New York experienced unprecedented destruction as a result of Superstorm Sandy. Sandy was the largest Atlantic hurricane in terms of size and the costliest Atlantic hurricane to ever make landfall in the United States.

As part of our continued effort to identify & share lessons learned from this disaster, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) would like to cordially invite you to a Superstorm Sandy forum on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. This half-day, high impact forum will convene from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm at 26 Federal Plaza (6th floor Conference Center), New York, New York 10278. The forum agenda will be posted soon.
