FEMA Sends Seaside Park Almost $1.2M for Superstorm Recovery
Seaside Park's superstorm restoration efforts get more than a million helping hands from Washington.
The borough is approved for a grant of $1,182,525.13 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for recovery assistance.
The grand supports emergency protective measures including search-and-rescue maneuvers, evacuations, and relocation of facilities that were destroyed or damaged during last October's hurricane.
Shore Representative Jon Runyan (R-3) announced the grant today.
"Seaside Park, like so many other shore towns, was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy," Runyan said in a prepared release. "As we near the end of another beach season, this money is critical to helping the town get back on its feet and ready for 2014. I remain focused on ensuring that our coastal communities receive the funds necessary to help them recover and rebuild."
Runyan returns to Townsquare Media's shore headquarters in Toms River to take your questions and comments during "Ask The Congressman," August 26 at 7 PM.
