Public Hearings Scheduled February 11th, 12th, 13th at Richard Stockton College, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Brookdale Community College 

Trenton, NJ - Christie Administration cabinet members leading New Jersey’s recovery and rebuilding efforts will hold three public hearings to detail the proposed amendment to the New Jersey Disaster Recovery Action Plan, which outlines how the state will spend $1.46 billion in federal Sandy recovery funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Yesterday, the Administration opened a 30-day period for the public to comment on the state’s plan, which will run through March 5, 2014.

The plan was developed in consultation with residents, elected officials, long-term recovery groups and other stakeholders in New Jersey and will incorporate feedback received during the public comment period. 

During each public hearing, the Christie Administration will also host representatives from state agencies for a Mobile Cabinet meeting to offer hands-on assistance to Sandy-impacted residents and businesses.
