LITTLE FERRY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey residents affected by Superstorm Sandy are going to have more help in getting their lives back.
Gov. Chris Christie has announced $57 million in federal money that’s available for families who were displaced after the storm. Christie made the announcement Tuesday in Little Ferry, site of widespread flooding from the Hackensack River after the storm hit last October.
Thousands of homes and businesses in Little Ferry, Moonachie and Carlstadt were flooded when a tidal surge pushed the river several feet over its banks and across the region.
The new program is called “The Working Families Living Expenses Voucher Program.” It can be used for rent or mortgage payments, utility payments and to replace furniture and appliances.
