Brick Township has an opportunity to secure grants to assist citizens with housing rehabilitation after Hurricane Sandy and Mayor Steve Acropolis is asking residents to assist the effort by contacting Rehabco.  Rehabco will apply for the grant using the information citizens provide.

“We have been made aware that there is an opportunity to get funding for people in need,” said Mayor Acropolis.  “There are many families in Brick Township who could benefit greatly from these grants.  We need these families to contact Rehabco.”

Rehabco Associates coordinates the Township’s housing rehabilitation and CDBG programs.  Anyone interested in housing rehabilitation assistance as result of Hurricane Sandy should call Rehabco at 732-477-7750.

The grants that are being offered to organizations are between $100,000 and $1,000,000.  Those grants will be distributed by the organization to provide help to needy or distressed households so that they can make their homes habitable or to help them secure temporary housing.  Households are considered “needy or distressed” if they have suffered financial harm or the loss of safe, stable housing due to Hurricane Sandy and have demonstrated financial need.

Grants are for primary residences and qualifying for FEMA assistance is not required.
Funds are to be used to help return a home to habitability if appropriate, help those in need secure new homes, or provide temporary housing.  To be deemed habitable, after repair a residence must have ample heat, hot water and electricity, be free of mold, with living quarters that have walls, floors, windows and doors in place.

Funds may also be used for housing-related necessities, such as electrical and heating services, mortgage or rental payments, new mattresses or other essential furniture, appliances and house wares.  Non-housing related essential expenses such as appropriate winter clothes and shoes, food and other basics of daily living can also be supported.
