U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone announced the new funding Monday after touring storm-damaged Sea Bright.

The U.S. housing secretary is attending an afternoon news conference in Little Ferry to make a formal announcement.

In the first round of funding in April, New Jersey received $1.83 billion in Sandy aid.

The money comes as Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Tuesday is the anniversary of the Oct. 29, 2012 storm that damaged or destroyed about 340,000 homes and businesses in New Jersey.
