OCEANPORT - The 57 families still living at Fort Monmouth after being displaced by Superstorm Sandy will continue to be able to stay for the summer, but they will be forced to start paying rent.

Up until now, FEMA has been covering the rent for the converted housing.  FEMA planned to shut it down April 30, but has changed the date to August 31.

Families will have to start paying rent beginning May 1.  Monthly rents will range anywhere from $1,100 to $1,900.
