Federal disaster assistance to New Jerseyans who suffered damage from Hurricane Irene and resulting flooding has now surpassed $100 million, according to acting New Jersey Gov. Kim Guadagno.
“We’ve already been able to secure $116 million worth of federal funding to recover from these losses,” Guadagno said Wednesday. “It’s not enough, but it is a great step forward.”
About $104 million of the money is for housing and other needs assistance. Nearly $12 million in low-interest loans has been provided to homeowners, renters, businesses and nonprofit organizations.
The deadline to register with FEMA to get federal assistance is Oct. 31.
