The Red Cross is working closely with local, state, and federal emergency management teams to provide shelters throughout New Jersey.
President Obama acted quickly to issue Major Disaster Declarations for many New Jersey counties suffering damage from Super Storm Sandy, and Senator Lautenberg has requested that all counties in our state receive the designation. This makes New Jersey residents eligible for a number of Federal disaster relief programs that offer grants and loans to individuals and loans to businesses.
The Federal Government has a website that consolidates the application process across several Federal agencies, including FEMA and the Small Business Administration. The website also reduces the number of forms you will ultimately have to fill out, shortens the time it takes to apply, and allows you to check the progress of your applications online.
Please contact Arnold Cohen by the end of the day today, Thursday, November 1, 2012, if any of your properties were effected by the storm.
