WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) announced that Little Silver was in the first round of federal funding to help reimburse New Jersey municipalities for cleanup work completed in the wake of Super Storm Sandy.
This first round of funding includes more than $8.3 million in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance funding. Little Silver is set to get $1.67 million.
“This federal emergency funding will help reduce the cost burden on local governments that rose to the occasion and acted without hesitation to keep families and neighborhoods safe,” Lautenberg said.
“This federal funding will help reimburse our local governments for the emergency work they’ve already done and we will continue working every day to make sure every community impacted is not just reimbursed, but has the resources they need to fully recover and rebuild,” Menendez said.
