May 29, 2013

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jon Runyan (NJ-3) announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded a grant of $1,338,746.43 to Brick Township.  The funding will be used to repair Docks A and B at Traders Cove Marina, which were damaged in Hurricane Sandy.  Runyan made the following statement:

“Brick Township suffered tremendous damages during Hurricane Sandy and can use this assistance to rebuild and recover,” stated Runyan.  “I look forward to continuing to work with our shore communities to see that they receive the support they need to be made whole again.” 

Brick Township also received a $1.47M grant from FEMA in late April to help the town recover after Super Storm Sandy. The grant provided federal funding for Emergency Protective Measures to assist in projects such as clearing roadways, providing sheltering, and around the clock police protection for facilities destroyed or damaged as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
