Storm Relief Grant Programs

Long Beach Township would like to send this reminder to primary residents of the town. You may be eligible to register for the following two storm relief grant programs that are being administered by the State of New Jersey’s Department of Community Affairs. Even if you have applied for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) you should also register for these programs. The HMGP application is still pending and any updates will be posted on the township website and joint emergency management page.

To register for either of the State progams:

1) The Homeowner Resettlement Program and/or

2) The Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation Programs

Please either visit the website at www.renewjerseystronger.org call the State hotline at 1-855-726-3946 or visit the recovery center located at 750 Vassar Avenue, Suite 1 Lakewood NJ.

The “reNew Jersey Stronger” Housing Initiative was launched May 24 to encourage and assist homeowners to reconstruct and resettle in their primary residences. The Stronger NJ Business Loan Program will be launched in July to help local businesses recover and expand within storm-impacted communities.

For information homeowners are directed to contact the State hotline.
