Sens. Menendez, Booker Announce $1.5 million in Sandy Relief Funds for Brick Township

NEWARK, NJ - U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker today announced the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded $1.513 million in federal Sandy relief funding to Brick Township to help cover the costs of debris removal after the Superstorm.

"In the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, local communities worked quickly and tirelessly to remove debris and make sure neighborhoods were safe,"said Sen. Menendez. "This funding will help reimburse Brick Township for doing just that and keeps them on the road to full recovery."

"So many communities were left with the overwhelming task of clearing debris in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy's destruction and I am proud to join Senator Menendez in announcing funds that helps to alleviate this burden," Sen. Booker said. "Federal funding announced today will help Brick Township continue the challenging task of rebuilding and restoring all that was lost."

The President signed the Superstorm Sandy Supplemental Appropriations bill into law last year, bringing the total Sandy aid enacted by Congress to $60.2 billion. The funding package included federal aid to help homeowners, businesses, and communities recover, and resources to rebuild coastal, transportation, and water infrastructure.
