The American Red Cross and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund are providing a total of $15.2 million for a new program to help eligible New Jersey homeowners rebuild their homes.

The program is designed to benefit homeowners who have been awarded reconstruction, rehabilitation, elevation and mitigation grants in Sandy-impacted communities.    

"In partnering with the American Red Cross and New Jersey Community Capital on this program, we hope to help as many homeowners as possible obtain access to the federal funds they need to rebuild their homes," said New Jersey's First Lady and chair of the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, Mrs. Mary Pat Christie. "This grant seeks to help New Jersey homeowners fill the gap in total rebuilding costs.”
