NJ Residents Will Soon Hear About Sandy Grant Awards

New Jersey residents will begin hearing this week whether they’re getting money to rebuild badly damaged homes or stay in their communities after Superstorm Sandy.

State Community Affairs Commissioner Richard Constable tells The Associated Press that 3,500 households will be informed that they are receiving grants of up to $150,000 to cover rebuilding costs not covered by insurance or other government programs.

Recipients of those grants will have to work with state-approved builders and choose from house plans selected by the state.

Another 5,000 households are on the waitlist.

Also, about 11,000 households who lived in storm-damaged homes are being notified that they will receive $10,000. They have to agree to live in the same county for the next three years.
