Menendez Applauds $475 Million In Federal Sandy Relief To Help Restore And Rebuild Communities

Federal lands and facilities to be restored, rebuilt

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez today applauded the announcement of $475 million in federal Sandy relief being released by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The funding will be used for restoring and rebuilding storm-affected areas throughout the state.

“Through the fight for federal Sandy relief on Capitol Hill, I drove the point that we needed federal resources for a full recovery from the storm. This funding enables New Jersey to do much of the heavy lifting involved with restoring New Jersey’s federal lands and facilities – from clearing more than 176 stranded boats and the hazardous materials they contain from the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway, to rebuilding Cape May’s boardwalk, to making sure the Statue of Liberty is ready to reopen by July 4th,” said Senator Menendez, who helped lead the New Jersey delegation in the fight for federal Sandy aid.

“This is most welcome news as we continue to count down the days to the start of our summer tourism season, and welcoming visitors to our shores, our parks, our communities and landmarks – everything that makes New Jersey great. I will never stop fighting for the federal support for our full recovery. It’s a long road ahead, and it leads to a better and stronger New Jersey.”
