NJ boosts Sandy grants to some towns, cuts others

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Some New Jersey towns are seeing their allocations change in a post-Superstorm Sandy energy program as they state re-evaluates the applications.

The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/1id433B ) has found 16 entities are getting boosts and 10 are getting less money in the program than originally announced.

The program uses federal money to help local governments and authorities install backup power sources in case of major outages like the one after Sandy in 2012.

The state Environmental Protection Department says the awards were announced last fall but not actually doled out.

Most entities in the $25 million program received a few hundred thousand dollars.
