EDISON - New Jersey officials will hold three public meetings about how the state will spend $1.4 billion in Sandy recovery funds.

Gov. Chris Christie’s administration says it wants about half of the money to go toward housing, including grants for rebuilding and the construction of new apartment buildings.

They say out of $735 million for housing assistance, $450 million would go to low- or moderate-income families. About one-third of the next round of money would fix transportation, energy and water infrastructure.

The first meeting will be held on Tuesday at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Galloway from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The second meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at NJIT's Newark campus from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

A third meeting will take place Thursday at Brookdale Community College in Middletown from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
