Sandy Voucher Program Hits Funding Milestone

Gov. Chris Christie announced Wednesday that the state’s Sandy Working Families Living Expenses Voucher Program has dished out more than $11 million to storm survivors since the program’s inception three months ago.

The voucher program, also known as “SHRAP,” offers eligible residents up to $15,000 for mortgage, rent and utility payments over a period of six months. It can also help cover costs for essential household items like beds and appliances.

Most of the funding has been distributed in Ocean County ($6.9 million), with high volumes also reported in Monmouth, Atlantic, Bergen and Hudson counties. Approximately 7,300 storm survivors have received assistance so far, but tens of millions of dollars are still up for grabs.

“Some programs are incredibly oversubscribed, and some programs are undersubscribed, and so this is one that’s undersubscribed at the moment,” explained Christie. “There may be folks out there who haven’t utilized it yet, and if you haven’t, you still can.”
