FEMA says 100’s of N.J. rental units available

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it has identified 769 homes and apartments available for rent in storm-affected areas of the state.

    People displaced by Superstorm Sandy who have qualified for FEMA assistance can use their rental assistance toward the security deposit and rent on the units.

    Those who may have not needed FEMA assistance earlier may apply to move to rental housing if their housing situation has changed.

    The agency says it has identified 250 units in Atlantic County, 353 units in Monmouth County and 166 in Ocean County.

    Available units are listed on FEMA’s website:  or at socialserve.com under the New Jersey link.
