TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Historic sites across New Jersey that were damaged by Superstorm Sandy are now eligible for federal disaster grants to help fund repairs.
Gov. Chris Christie’s administration announced Thursday that it is now accepting applications for about $8 million in federal aid earmarked for sites in the state.
Up to $500,000 per property will be available for repairs of historic and archaeological sites and buildings affected by the storm.
Properties must be listed or eligible for placement on the National Register of Historic Places to qualify.
Nonprofits, cities and counties have until June 30 to submit applications to the state and New Jersey Historic Trust. The two are partnering to determine how to distribute the funds.
