SAYREVILLE - Neighborhoods stuck with Sandy damage say the delay in federal aid is more than they can bear.
New Jersey residents have been waiting about five months for help and according to Gov. Chris Christie, 40,000 families are still displaced after the storm.
Diana Casey, of Sayreville, says she is still tens of thousands of dollars away from being able to afford rebuilding. Casey says that many residents will just pack up and leave if federal aid isn't distributed soon.
At a town hall meeting yesterday, Christie said the first $1.8 billion in grants to help home and business owners should be rolled out in the next four to six weeks. In the months that follow, another $3 billion could be added on.
