NJ Awarded $28M FEMA Grant

U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, and Congressman Frank Pallone have announced the awarding of a $28,3 million Sandy relief grant to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to repair the seawall protecting Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright that was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

The funding, made through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), represents a reimbursement for 90% of the total cost of the project.

The seawall in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach is the first line of defense against Mother Nature for these communities, protecting them from potential devastation caused by severe flooding,” said Sen. Menendez.

By helping rebuild the seawall in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach, these federal funds mark another step towards ensuring New Jersey families, businesses and natural areas are more resilient and better protected in the face of another potentially devastating storm,” said Sen. Booker. 

Repairing this seawall is essential to protecting Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright when the next storm hits, and grants like this one are vital to reducing the burden our local governments face in the recovery progress,” said Rep. Pallone.

In 2013, the President signed the Superstorm Sandy Supplemental Appropriations bill into law, bringing the total Sandy aid enacted by Congress to $60.2 billion.

The funding package included federal aid to help homeowners, businesses, and communities recover, and resources to rebuild coastal, transportation, and water infrastructure.
