Pascrell Reacts to Reopening of RREM, Resettlement Appeals Process

Urges for additional action to ensure homeowners have access to assistance they need
Following his conversation today with Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Commissioner Richard Constable, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) released the following statement regarding DCA's decision to reopen the appeals process for homeowners that applied to the the Reconstruction Rebuilding Elevations and Mitigation (RREM) and Resettlement program but were denied. During the call, Rep. Pascrell expressed his concerns about homeowners in his district and across the state that are still not back in their home more than a year after Sandy made landfall in the Northeast.

"I'm pleased to see DCA reopen the appeals process for homeowners that had their RREM and Resettlement applications denied. This is a step in the right direction, but makes it evidently clear that more work needs to be done to get folks the rebuilding assistance they need. That's why I continue to urge Governor Christie to reopen the RREM grant program so people in towns like Little Ferry and Moonachie get access to the help they are entitled to."
