Update May 31, 2013: There have been some recent developments of out the Governor’s Office of Rebuilding and Recovery (GORR), regarding HMGP 4086 Mitigation funding allocations. The GORR has identified acquisitions and elevations thus far, as State priority projects. There are more decisions being made at this point, regarding both HMGP and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding allocations. NJOEM will provide updates as soon as they become available.
All acquisition projects will be run by NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Green Acres program, who will act as the subgrantee for acquisitions.
All elevations will run through NJ Dept. of Community Affairs (NJDCA) State run elevation process (combination of CDBG and HMGP funding). Please advise all of your respective municipalities who expressed interest in elevations, to alert residents to contact and register with NJDCA at:
The state has also set up two hotlines:
855-SANDYHM (855-726-3946) for homeowners
855-SANDYBZ (855-726-3929) for business owners
Original posting from April 30, 2013: The Christie Administration has received approval from the Obama Administration to move forward with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery Action Plan. This plan outlines how we will utilize the first phase of the emergency supplemental passed by Congress in January. The first $1,829,520,000 in CDBG funds provided to New Jersey by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will focus primarily on helping homeowners, renters, businesses and communities impacted by Super Storm Sandy.

To assist in the recovery from Superstorm Sandy, New Jersey received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) an initial allocation of approximately $1.8 billion of Community Disaster Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to be used to satisfy needs arising from the storm that are not satisfied by other funding sources. Governor Chris Christie has tasked the NJEDA to administer $460 million of these funds to support the recovery of storm-impacted businesses. Of this total, $260 million will fund the Stronger NJ Business Grant program.
