There have been some recent developments of out the Governor's Office of Rebuilding and Recovery (GORR), regarding HMGP 4086 Mitigation funding allocations. The GORR has identified acquisitions and elevations thus far, as State priority projects. There are more decisions being made at this point, regarding both HMGP and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding allocations. NJ Office of Emergency Management will provide updates as soon as they become available.
All acquisition projects will be run by NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Green Acres program, who will act as the subgrantee for acquisitions.
All elevations will run through NJ Dept. of Community Affairs (NJDCA) State run elevation process (combination of CDBG and HMGP funding). Residents who are interested in elevations, MUST contact and register with NJDCA at:
The state has also set up two hotlines:
855-SANDYHM (855-726-3946) for homeowners
855-SANDYBZ (855-726-3929) for business owners
The website and hotlines should answer all homeowner questions regarding elevations.
