STATE – Beginning at 8 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, June 8, Housing Recovery Centers will open in each of the nine counties most impacted by Superstorm Sandy.
Eligible homeowners whose primary residences were damaged or destroyed in the storm can visit the Housing Recovery Centers to apply in-person for two reNew Jersey Stronger housing grants: the Homeowner Resettlement Program and the Homeowner Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program.
Sandy-impacted homeowners DO NOT NEED to come to the Housing Recovery Centers if they previously applied to the reNew Jersey Stronger grant programs online or over the phone. Instead, applicants who previously applied will be contacted in the next few weeks about the status of their application(s) and any additional steps that they must take.
Union County’s center is located at 150 Morris Avenue, Suite 101, Springfield. Middlesex County’s center is located at 1 Metroplex Drive, Edison. All centers are open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For more information regarding the reNew Jersey Stronger housing grants, including eligibility information and application instructions, and to apply online, visit www.renewjerseystronger.org.
The DCA Superstorm Sandy Housing Assistance hotline is also open at 1-855-SANDYHM (1-855-726-3946) to answer any questions you may have about the application process and to help you apply.
