Fewer Than 600 Appeal Sandy Aid Denials

About one-tenth of the New Jersey residents who were given more time to appeal denials of housing aid after Superstorm Sandy have taken up the offer.

The state’s Community Affairs Department said Tuesday that fewer than 600 people had appealed.

After complaints about the state’s two major federally funded post-Sandy housing programs, New Jersey opened a new appeals period and sent letters to 5,400 people who were denied from the program and did not appeal during the initial period.

The state says 358 people appealed denials in the resettlement program that gave families $10,000 to cover costs. And 224 appealed the rejections from a program that gives homeowners up to $150,000 for repair and rebuilding costs not covered by insurance or other government programs.
