Sandy-Flooded Residents Should Apply for This Grant

Point Boro: Hazard mitigation grants may be available

Point Borough is urging its Sandy-flooded residents to apply for FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grants.

Attached is an application form that eligible Borough homeowners are being urged to complete and submit by February 5 for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.

Also attached is an instruction form for the residents (it's best for residents to read the instructions before completing the application).

The application must be returned to the Borough, then the Borough submits a complete application on behalf of the interested residents, said Borough Administrator David Maffei.

"This is a competitive grant and there is no guarantee that anyone will receive funding," Maffei said.

If anyone has any questions they should call the Borough Engineer, Ernie Peters at (732) 286-9220 or e-mail him at Ernie.Peters@rve.com.

While NJ and NY have succumb to the arbitrary time frame, DC, the bedrock of the country's government, is taking a measured and thoughtful approach to the impending dangers. It's especially interesting as parts of DC are prone to repeated, heavy flooding . http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/33124/title/Serious-Flooding-Predicted-for-DC/

stopor, My point is all/most representatives who are voting on Biggert Waters/FEMA Funding etc have residences in DC, as do the FEMA officials. Despite repeated flooding in DC for years, there has been no requirement to immediately require adherence to new building standards. However, in response to what has been referred to as a once in a 100 year storm, our lives are being turned up side down. If the center of the federal government can exist without addressing this risk, what is the urgency in implementing these changes here?
