LMI Homeowners Rebuilding Program
DEADLINE TO APPLY - MARCH 20TH
03-06-15 Mayor Carmen Amato is urging those residents affected by Superstorm Sandy to apply for the new LMI Homeowners Rebuilding Program. “This new program could be helpful to those who were unable to apply for the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation, and Mitigation or (RREM) Program or The Resettlement Program. Both of those programs were closed in 2013 and are no longer accepting any additional applicants. Those who missed the opportunity for those two grants now have an opportunity to apply for this program, if they meet the eligibility criteria.” Mayor Amato said.
According to the renewjerseystronger.org
website, the Low-to-Moderate Income Homeowners Rebuilding Program is designed to provide reconstruction, rehabilitation and elevation assistance to homeowners of low-to-moderate income (LMI) who were impacted by Superstorm Sandy and whose damaged primary residence is located in one of the nine most impacted Counties.
This program is additionally designed to serve LMI homeowners of Limited English Proficiency and owners of Manufactured Housing Units, as well as those LMI homeowners who did not apply for the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation, and Mitigation (RREM) Program. The LMI Homeowners Rebuilding Program has begun accepting applications.
The deadline to apply is March 20, 2015 at 11:59 PM.
