The Christie Administration is handing out $11.4 million in local aid funding to help municipalities in Ocean and Monmouth counties.

This is part of a statewide outpouring of $78 million in grants to advance street improvement, rehabilitation, and safety projects around New Jersey.

In Ocean County, 22 towns are receiving $4.6 million in aid.  In Monmouth, 34 will split $6.8 million.

The money was awarded under the Municipal Aid program, but competition was fierce.  Only 57 percent of the 661 applications were honored.
