Sandy-Impacted Homeowners Have Until August 1 to Apply for RREM and Resettlement Programs

Sandy-impacted homeowners have until August 1, 2013 to apply for the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) and Homeowner Resettlement Programs. After August 1, applications will no longer be accepted for the two grant programs. Eligible homeowners can apply for grant assistance online at, by phone at 1-855-SANDYHM (1-855-726-3946), or in person at any one of the Housing Recovery Centers open in each of the nine counties most affected by Superstorm Sandy (Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union).

The initial application period for the grant programs ended on June 30, 2013. Applications received between June 30th and August 1st will be considered after all the applications from the initial application period have been processed, including those that were placed on the wait list. People on the wait list and people who applied after June 30th will be considered for a possible grant award when additional federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery funding becomes available, which is expected this fall.
