STATE — At the request of the State of New Jersey, FEMA’s Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program for people displaced by Superstorm Sandy has been extended for two weeks. The last hotel stay covered by the program will be the night of Dec. 12. The program will end with checkout on Dec. 13.
TSA is an emergency sheltering program. Survivors are encouraged to move into temporary rental or permanent housing as soon as possible. FEMA is working with TSA recipients, along with federal and state partners, to provide housing options as the program expires.
As of Wednesday, Nov. 28, there were 2,824 survivors in the TSA program. FEMA will be contacting all survivors who are eligible for the TSA program to tell them about the extension.
