$27 Million Coming to NJ for Post Sandy Debris Removal

New Jersey is scheduled to receive $27 million in federal funding to remove debris that accumulated in the waterways along the coastline as a result of Superstorm Sandy

The funding is being provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as part of a Sandy aid package.

“The New Jersey coast sustained such severe damage from Sandy, and these grants help to lessen the financial hit that our local governments still face as communities continue to recover from Sandy,” said Congressman Frank Pallone in an emailed press release.  “That’s why I have been insistent that restoring our coast, beaches and waterways must be a top priority for the funding from the Sandy relief package.  I am grateful that FEMA recognizes the importance of these ongoing clean-up efforts in New Jersey.”

The $27,288,778.10 in funding will be given to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for the loading, hauling and disposal of debris in non-federally maintained waterways along the coast.  The project covers the north region of the coastline where the majority of damage occurred.
