The County, Toms River and the Township Board of Education will receive a combined $28 million, according to NJ.com. 3.75 is earmarked for Brick Township. One of Monmouth County’s hardest-hit communities, Sea Bright, is getting $1 million and Atlantic City will receive nearly $6.8 million.

The state Department of Community Affairs announced the funding, saying the grants will help towns still recovering, provide public safety, public works, education and other services critical to residents, businesses and visitors.

The funding is part of the second round of aid coming to New Jersey from the Federal government.
