Gov. Chris Christie has announced that new money will be made available to homeowners to elevate their homes damaged by Superstorm Sandy.  The Governor was in Brick, NJ yesterday to announce that a new program will reimburse as much as $30,000 of the cost for elevating houses in flood zones. $100 million of Federal Emergency Management Agency hazard mitigation grant money, will help about 2,700 homeowners.

According to the Governor, houses must be in 100-year flood plains and be in the nine counties that suffered the most damage from Sandy. Cape May, Atlantic and Ocean counties are included in the plan.

To apply you can call 855-726-3946, visit or apply in person at one of nine housing recovery centers throughout the state, including in Egg Harbor Township and Lower Township.

Applications will be accepted until September 15. If you’ve already completed or recently started the work to elevate your house, you wont be eligible due to federal restrictions.
