NJ Spotlight News: November 15, 2022

A new influx of cash is on the way to help New Jerseyans working to rebuild from Tropical Storm Ida more than a year after it barreled through the state. $149 million in disaster recovery grants is coming from the federal government in addition to the $228 million the state’s already received. Advocates said that first number fell short of the actual needs of storm survivors, so now with $337 million in hand, the state needs to create a program to distribute those funds. The advocacy group New Jersey Organizing Project is asking for some flexibility in the eligibility standards so more storm victims have a chance to get some help.
