•  Project Client:
  • The Centre for New York City Neighborhoods

3×3 served as the workshop designer, developer, and facilitator for the Centre for New York City Neighborhoods (CNYCN) for Temporary Housing Services Program, one of CNYCN’s programs that provides one-on-one temporary housing assistance to homeowners displaced by Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts under the HUD Build it Back program.


Project Context:

To design the participatory workshop, 3×3 reviewed existing documentation on the program, held discussions with the program manager and key personnel, and collected feedback from key stakeholders through a questionnaire to develop the workshop content and frame the design challenge. One (1) full day and two (2) half-day workshops were held with the program staff and vendors, and additional CNYCN staff. Through tailored training and facilitation, 3×3 helped the involved decision makers to build a baseline understanding of the program process and design feedback instruments, establish performance targets, identify opportunities and strategies for process improvement, and plan ongoing monitoring and evaluation activities.
