The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded the first batch of more than $34 million in Community Disaster Loans to Sandy-devastated local governments in New Jersey. The loans have a low interest rate and can be forgiven in certain circumstances.
More than $9.2 million in federal funds is on the way to Toms River, the New Jersey Department of Military Affairs, East Brunswick and Eagleswood Township to reimburse the municipalities and state for emergency measures taken as a result of Sandy.
The first federal hearing on Superstorm Sandy recovery and rebuilding was held this morning in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs heard from three witnesses who provided testimony on how federal officials are supporting and coordinating recovery efforts.
New Jersey is doing everything it can to retain visitors the year after Super Storm Sandy hit, and while many officials fear other states "poaching" tourism, several summer destination location say the onus will be on the Garden State to welcome back visitors.
The cost to clean up the damage left behind by Superstorm Sandy isn't cheap. No one knows that better than Ocean County officials, who are set to approve an emergency appropriation this week. It will be the third one since the storm hit back in October.
