A few more Hurricane Sandy victims will soon receive grant money from New Jersey thanks to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). $110 million of the $1.83 billion in Community Development Block Grants will be moved to into the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) grant program. This means some homeowners with receive up to $150,000 for storm repairs. This means about 1,000 more homeowners will receive funding through this grant.
For the few fortunate homeowners who receive money through the RREM Pathway B grant, there are a few guidelines. First, by choosing Pathway B, you are responsible for hiring your own contractor. You will have to certify that you have engaged a contractor, and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) will have to verify that contractor. You will then receive a check for 50% of your RREM grant.
