The Federal Emergency Management Agency has awarded a grant of $1,750,685.63 to Mantoloking, according to Rep. Jon Runyan, R-Ocean.
The money will be used for the demolition, loading, hauling, disposal and monitoring of private property debris removal as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
“Immediately following Superstorm Sandy, I saw first-hand the destruction and damage in Mantoloking, and it was without a doubt one of the hardest hit towns,” said Runyan. “These funds, which focus on debris removal, will ensure that Mantoloking has the resources it needs to be made whole again.”
Runyan said he remains focused on ensuring that coastal communities receive the funds necessary to help them recover and rebuild.
Mantoloking, which was among the towns that suffered the most severe damage caused by the storm, now joins a list of several other towns that have received FEMA assistance in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
