Menendez, Booker Announce $3M in Federal Sandy Aid for North Hudson Sewage Authority

U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced the awarding of a $2,990,908.35 Sandy relief grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to the North Hudson Sewage Authority to replace electrical feeder cables at the waste water plant that was damaged as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

“This federal funding will bring our state one step further down the path to full recovery from Superstorm Sandy,” said Sen. Menendez. “Our infrastructure took a beating during Sandy and it is absolutely critical we rebuild it better and more resilient to withstand the next storm.”

“Nearly three years later, New Jersey communities are still recovering from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy,” Sen. Booker said. “The funding announced today will move our state one step further along the road to recovery, and make New Jersey stronger in the face of the next natural storm. We’ll keep working until every family and every community is made whole again.”

In 2013, the President signed the Superstorm Sandy Supplemental Appropriations bill into law, bringing the total Sandy aid enacted by Congress to $60.2 billion. The funding package included federal aid to help homeowners, businesses, and communities recover, and resources to rebuild coastal, transportation, and water infrastructure.
