Another $3.6 million in federal funding has arrived in New Jersey to help hire unemployed residents assist in the Superstorm Sandy rebuilding effort.

According to the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD), the funding will be used to employ job-seekers for projects in Monmouth County, as well as in state parks and other public properties.

The new round of money adds to the initial $15.6 National Emergency Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, sent to New Jersey immediately after Sandy, which was directed toward a plan to employ 1,000 people for temporary cleanup and recovery jobs. Approximately 95 people are still working under the first grant, LWD indicated.

Job-seekers interested in a temporary job under the grant can apply by sending an e-mail to: sandyhelp@dol.state.nj.us or by calling (609) 777-1836 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
