Fulfilling promise made on Sandy 6th Anniversary

Monday, April 8, 2019

NEPTUNE, N.J. – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, chair of the Sandy Task Force, today joined Governor Phil Murphy, and Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (N.J.-06) to announce the federal approval for the state to redirect millions in Sandy aid to help Superstorm Sandy survivors finish rebuilding their homes and get back on their feet.

“The 1,200 or so New Jerseyans who remain in the state rebuilding program have been through hell and back again. Some were defrauded by their building contractor; some had to spend tens of thousands of dollars fighting flood insurance companies in court; and some remain paralyzed by the fear of dreaded claw-back letters,” said Sen. Menendez. “These Sandy survivors have faced many different obstacles. But at the end of the day they all share the same dream of returning home and getting on with their lives. Their marathon is not yet over but today the finish line is on the horizon, and the day they can return home is within reach.” 

Sens. Menendez and Cory Booker, Gov. Murphy and Rep. Pallone marked the six-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy in Union Beach last year where they originally announced these plans to further aid Sandy survivors. The key steps include:

  • The creation of a $50 million Supplemental Fund that will help Sandy survivors rebuild their homes. Funding for the program originates from the 2013 Sandy relief packagethat Sen. Menendez fought tirelessly to pass through Congress. 
  • Extending the Rental Assistance Program (RAP) by an additional 19 months for a total of 40 months for Sandy survivors who are still rebuilding and not yet back in their homes. 
  • Freezing all claw backs of Sandy aid. In 2017, Sen. Menendez and Rep. Pallone introduced legislation to prevent claw backs of federal disaster assistance from victims of Sandy. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has clawed back almost $3 million from more than 750 Sandy survivors. 
  • Eliminating the $150,000 cap on grants for homeowners to finish rebuilding, repairing and elevating their homes.

Sen. Menendez has been the leading voice in Congress to ensure Sandy victims have the resources necessary to rebuild and that the federal government is treating them fairly. 

He’s the author of the comprehensive, bipartisan legislation known as the Sustainable, Affordable, Fair, and Efficient National Flood Insurance Program (SAFE NFIP). The bill, which was co-sponsored by Sen. Booker and in the House by Rep. Pallone, would remedy the problems of the current flood insurance program that caused so many Sandy survivors to suffer in the wake of the storm.

The SAFE NFIP Act would extend the federal flood insurance program for six years while instituting a series of sweeping reforms. The bill authorizes significant investment in mitigation and resiliency efforts to reduce flood risk, while addressing critical problems that arose following Superstorm Sandy and other disasters, namely: unsustainability, low participation rates, inaccurate flood maps, an indifference to the benefits of flood control infrastructure, agency mismanagement, unsustainable debt service costs and contractor profiteering. 

The senator successfully pressed FEMA to reopen all Sandy claims, intimating a review process that led to policyholders getting an additional $260 million to rebuild their homes. SAFE NFIP would ensure survivors of devastating flooding never go through what Sandy survivors experienced after the storm.

Sen. Menendez first exposed the problem of widespread lowballing of flood insurance claims during Congressional hearings he chaired in 2014. 

Sen. Menendez authored the Superstorm Sandy Relief and Disaster Loan Program Improvement Act, signed into law in 2017, which extended and expanded access to federal disaster loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). His Homeowner’s Flood Insurance Affordability Act was signed into law in 2014 to address skyrocketing rates many Sandy survivors were encountering.

Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday announced a helping hand: New Jersey is officially redirecting up to $100 million in Sandy disaster aid to help the nearly 1,000 individuals and families remaining in the state’s largest disaster rebuilding program.

“We now have hope that all Sandy families will have the financial support they need to finish their rebuilding projects, to return home and to truly make New Jersey whole again after the worst natural disaster in our state’s history,” Murphy said during a news conference at the Shark River Municipal Marina in Neptune

As of the end of March, 957 applicants were in the construction phase of the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation, and Mitigation (RREM) program or its sister initiative open only to low- and moderate-income homeowners.

Nancy and Tony Caira are one of those families who have spent the last 78 months in limbo.

As middle-class owners of a modest 800-square-foot bungalow, the Cairas are the type of people who are disappearing from the Shore.

To hear Nancy tell it, they might have been one of those who cut ties, except they had no better option financially than to gut the house and live in it until they could demolish, rebuild and elevate a new home on the same footprint.

The Cairas didn’t think that would be their reality for the next six and half years and counting.

“It just wears on you,” said Nancy Caira, 52, who fought through nerves to introduce Murphy at the beginning of the event.

Short of what they need by $102,000, the Cairas believed that they’d missed out on their opportunity as they watched nonprofits and charities wind down their operations in New Jersey. 

“As delays and the time went on, that money was no longer available,” Caira said. “The supplemental fund is really going to be our lifeline.”

The centerpiece of Murphy’s announcement, the supplemental fund is a newly created $50 million pool available to homeowners who have yet to finish construction — or even start, as in the Cairas’ case — because they don’t have the resources to do so. 

Homeowners who take the money are required to live in the rebuilt homes for at least five years. The administration anticipates these funds could be put to use as soon as this summer.

Murphy also announced the extension of rental assistance for people who have to move out of their home during construction.

That program pays up to $1,300 per month for up to 40 months of housing for displaced families in the RREM program. Previously, assistance was cut off after 21 months.

Murphy, accompanied by some of the same faces, teased these plans during a speech in Union Beach on the sixth anniversary of the storm.

The funds come from a $4.2 billion pot of money committed to New Jersey by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2013. About $1.2 billion of that has yet to be spent.

“We knew that the road to recovery would be long,” said U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-New Jersey. “We knew that rebuilding our homes and communities would be less of a sprint and more of a marathon. … The marathon is not yet over, but today I see the finish line on the horizon.”

The New Jersey Organizing Project, a grassroots group that has been advocating for Sandy victims, is hosting community meetings during the next several weeks to help connect eligible homeowners with these newly available funds:

Commercial Construction Contractor Manasquan NJManasquan, New Jersey locals can look forward to an exciting addition to downtown in June. A brand new building dedicated to retail storefront and apartments is currently being built at 177 Main Street in Manasquan by A TruBuilders, Inc.

The finished structure will consist of four floors. The first floor will be devoted to two retail spaces, the second and third floors will house five residential units and the fourth floor will feature a mezzanine area that includes two decks and resembles the design of a New York City studio apartment.

In addition, the new building features architectural character with spiral staircases, a cathedral ceiling measuring 20 feet high, lofts on each floor that lead to the mezzanine and a big circle barrel window located near the top portion of the spiral staircases.

The project is going as planned and on scheduled to be completed in June. Currently, the roof has already been added, the siding has been attached and most of the interior mechanicals have been finished.

Commercial Construction Manasquan NJThe project began in the fall of 2015 when A TruBuilders, Inc. was hired to renovate a two story building occupying 177 Main Street. A TruBuilders, Inc. attempted to preserve some of the historical value of the building, but the entire building had to be demolished due to the fact that there were no footings present under the structure and the building itself had been labeled as structurally unsound by Frank DiRoma, borough code enforcement officer.

Gray Olsen, president of A TruBuilders, Inc., explained that footings are an essential component of a solid structure due to their ability to keep walls from settling. Before his crew could begin constructing the new four story building, footings had to be properly put into place.

So far, the owners of the property, Andy and Eileen Laszlo, have had two different businesses interested in renting the storefront spaces and tenants are secured for three of the apartments.

Tips For Protecting Yourself When Hiring a Contractor

Always Hire a Contractor That Is Registered

In the state of New Jersey, all home improvement businesses must be registered with the Division of Consumer Affairs. To register, a business must meet requirements such as having a legitimate street address and at least $500,000 in liability insurance. When you are interested in hiring a contractor, the first step is to contact the Division of Consumer Affairs and see if the contractor is in fact a legitimate business.

Get a Written Contract

For all projects estimated at over $500, the Division of Consumer Affairs requires that a written contract be present. Even if a project falls under the $500 threshold, it is suggested that customers still establish a paper contract. All contracts must contain the following information:

  • Contractor’s legal name and business address
  • Contractor’s registration number
  • Project start and completion dates
  • Details of the work to be performed
  • Total project price
