The superstorm struck in late October, killing at least 140 people in 10 states but hitting New York and New Jersey the hardest.

The pension fund money will go to projects that affect transportation, power, water, communications and housing in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan region.

The teachers' pension fund manages assets of about $46 billion for 110,000 current members and 80,000 retirees.
