New Jersey’s federal relief for Hurricane Irene continues to grow and is now nearing $230 million, the Star-Ledger reports.
Reviews of the Halloween weekend snowstorm began Monday after Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency. Stemming from the Irene disaster declaration, more than $150 million has gone toward housing and needs assistance, and $74 million for small business disaster loans.
Nov. 30 is the relief application deadline.
