“I urge you to support the Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group’s request for a $20 million appropriation through New Jersey’s Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery Action Plan (Tranche 3) being submitted to HUD this month. This appropriation will provide households in the nine most impacted counties with:
• DISASTER CASE MANAGEMENT and Construction Support that Eliminates Barriers to Recovery and Ensures that Households REBUILD IN FULL COMPLIANCE with HUD Requirements.
• RREM EDUCATION AND RESOURCES that Empowers Households to Own Their Recovery.
• And RESOURCES TO ADDRESS UNMET NEEDS.
OCLTRG is a SOLUTION that is WORKING for NJ families. Without the inclusion of $20 million for OCLTRG in the State’s Action Plan, the recovery and rebuilding that is finally gaining momentum will be compromised to the detriment of all New Jersey residents.”
