Joe and his 12-year-old daughter moved into their Little Egg Harbor home just one month before Superstorm Sandy destroyed it. They thought rock bottom was being told that they couldn’t even go back inside their ruined home to retrieve any belongings because the structure was unsafe.
But the real horror came when they were turned away from grant after grant because they had difficulty proving they had been living in the home due to their recent move before the storm. After years of battling through the state grant process, Joe has finally been awarded most of the funds necessary to rebuild his home. He still has a gap of $12,000, however, because many other resources that were available to Sandy survivors have dried up while he was stuck proving his eligibility. With this assistance Joe and his daughter will be able to build a future.
