OCEANPORT - Time in federal housing could be limited for dozens of families displaced by Sandy who are still staying in apartments at Fort Monmouth.

FEMA tells News 12 New Jersey those 88 families can stay free of charge for up to 18 months, but are expected to be saving money for a move to permanent home.

The federal government says this type of housing was a last resort, because all other options were exhausted.

Each case is reviewed each month to see if they still qualify for FEMA assistance.
