More Sandy Aid Promised for NJ [VIDEO]
Almost ten months after Superstorm Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan toured parts of North Jersey that were flooded by the storm.
Walking through a neighborhood in Moonachie, Donovan and Christie talked with residents, some of whom received assistance through state and federal programs.
During formal remarks in Little Ferry, Donovan said FEMA has already provided $12 billion in funding for recovery projects, and HUD has funneled $1.8 billion directly to the Garden State.
“We’re going to do everything we can, though, because there are still folks hurting out there. We know there is more to do, and billions of dollars in additional funding is on its way,” said Donovan.
When Donovan joked that Christie might make him an honorary Jersey Guy, Christie shot back that it would depend on how much more Jersey gets in federal funding.
