Money available for Sandy-damaged homes in New Jersey
July 22, 2013 (WPVI) -- Storm-battered residents of the Jersey Shore are getting a lift today -- and we mean that literally.
Governor Chris Christie announced a $100 million program that will reimburse residents up to $30,000 for costs associated with raising their homes.
The state will start taking applications today from homeowners in 9 counties hardest hit by Sandy and most prone to flooding.
You can apply for elevation grant assistance at renewjerseystronger.org or by calling 1-855-SANDYHM (1-855-726-3946).
People can also apply in person at one of the Housing Recovery Centers open in each of the nine most-impacted counties.
