Assembly Republican Press Release -
Program to Help Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Whose Primary Residence was Damaged by Superstorm Sandy
Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini applauded the Christie Administration for providing funds for seniors and individuals with disabilities whose homes were damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
“Even though many efforts have been made to help New Jersey residents affected by Superstorm Sandy, there is still much more work to do,” said Angelini. “This program will give seniors and individuals with disabilities, many of which who live on a fixed income, the opportunity to fix their homes.”
The Home and Repair Advocacy Program is funded by an $8.2 million federal Social Services Block Grant and will offer up to $5,000 for eligible households.
“The Home and Repair Advocacy Program will offer much needed assistance to many residents who are having difficulty repairing their homes,” said Angelini. “Receiving these additional funds will enable more people to get back into their homes.”
This program seeks to help seniors and individuals with disabilities fix necessary homeowner practicalities including replacing structural foundations, repairing heating and cool systems, and renovate major home appliances.
