Home Damaged by Sandy? You May be Eligible for the Final Round of Funding
If your primary home was damaged by Superstorm Sandy, you might be able to receive funding in this last round of help for victims of the hurricane.
According to tomsrivertownship.com, this is the State’s LMI (Low-to-Moderate) Income Homeowners Rebuilding Program, which focuses on income levels and amount of damage to your home.
Toms River Township Mayor Thomas Kelaher strongly encourages all Sandy-damaged homeowners to apply for this program. “There are many residents who have not yet applied for funding, due to various restrictions. This program raises the income limits a bit,” the Mayor stated.
“This is the last round of funding and most likely the last chance we have to see our residents apply for the funds.” If your home was not substantially damaged, but you incurred over $8,000 in damage or had more than one foot of water on your first floor, you are encouraged to apply.
In Ocean County, the income limits to apply are as follows:
1 person- $48,580
Family of 2- $55,850
Family of 3- $62,800
Family of 4- $69,800
Family of 5- $75,400
Family of 6- $80,950
Family of 7- $86,550
Family of 8- $92,150
As reported at renewjerseystronger.org, The LMI Homeowners Rebuilding Program began accepting applications January 5, 2015. The deadline to apply is March 4, 2015 at 11:59 PM.
