The Bloomberg administration has launched a new website to track how money slated for Hurricane Sandy relief is being spent. Administration officials said that some of the information on the so-called Sandy Funding Tracker would be updated every month, while some of it would be updated every quarter.

The website will track “the sources of federal funding that the city is getting to recover from Sandy, how is the city putting those funds to use and in what areas, and where are we in the process of actually spending that money,” Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway told NY1.

In October, New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said that his office would be vigilant in ensuring that roughly $575 million in Hurricane Sandy aid would reach victims. [NY1]Hiten Samtani
