New Jersey officials to hold 3 public meetings on plans for $1.4B in Sandy recovery funds
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.
