“In the days after Superstorm Sandy, Essex County acted swiftly to clean up debris, and this federal aid will help cover emergency costs that were incurred,” said U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, a member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security.  “This grant will help ease the burden of recovery in Essex County and I will continue working to ensure New Jersey receives its fair share of the $60 billion in federal Sandy funding as quickly as possible to help rebuild our state stronger.”

The storm’s damage wasn’t only limited to the Jersey shore or the flooding in Bergen County.

“That’s why I greatly appreciate this funding to help Essex County meet expenses it incurred while cleaning up debris after Sandy.  Just as our recovery continues, my commitment to fight for federal resources continues to help New Jersey come back better and stronger than ever before,” said U.S. Senator Robert Menendez.
