FEMA and State Schedule Briefings On Disaster Assistance

West Trenton - New Jersey county and municipal emergency management officials are invited to briefings which will explain the process of applying for federal disaster assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures, and hazard mitigation in the wake of the severe storm which impacted Atlantic, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties on June 23, 2015 . Though the meetings are not open to the public, citizens will benefit from the assistance received by their individual counties to offset the financial impact of the storm.

"Through our experience with Superstorm Sandy we have used our lessons learned to enhance policies and procedures," said Captain TJ Collins, State Coordinating Officer from the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management. "These briefings are intended to educate county and local officials on the eligibility requirements, application development and reimbursement process. We also have a responsibility to ensure that federal, state, and local dollars are used appropriately."

President Barack Obama has designated 4 New Jersey counties eligible for disaster assistance: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester.
