Brigantine, Piscataway Get Sandy Cleanup Funding

Brigantine and Piscataway Township are getting more than $3.4 million in federal grants to help with the costs of debris cleanup as a result of Superstorm Sandy. U.S. Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez made the announcement Tuesday.

“When Superstorm Sandy struck, New Jersey communities like Piscataway and Brigantine were tested like never before, and there are still many challenges to face as the work toward recovery continues,” said Senator Menendez. “Federal reimbursements for costs associated with the initial response to Superstorm Sandy are critical to our state’s overall recovery.”

Senator Lautenberg visited Brigantine with President Barack Obama after the storm hit; he said the funding should help the town be better prepared for the next natural disaster.

As New Jersey continues to recover, we’ll keep fighting to make sure that every city and town has the help it needs to recover and rebuild stronger,” Senator Lautenberg said.

More than $1.6 million is headed to Brigantine through the Federal Emergency Management Agency; Piscataway will receive more than $1.8 million.
