Information Session to be Held in Belmar on November 2nd to Answer RREM, LMI, and LRRP Program Applicants’ Questions about Rebuilding Their Properties

 

  

Trenton, NJ – The Christie Administration today announced the 39th Housing Recovery Information Session Rolex Datejust Replica will be held Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016, in Belmar to assist storm-affected homeowners participating in the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program and the LMI Homeowner Rebuilding Program, as well as for rental property owners participating in the Landlord Rental Repair Program (LRRP).

 

The Information Session will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Belmar Recreation Gym, 601 Main Street, Belmar, to provide individualized, hands-on assistance to help eligible RREM Program, LMI Program and LRRP participants with any housing recovery questions or issues they might have.

 

Approximately 2,400 applicants have attended the previous Information Sessions held since October 2014 in communities hard hit by Superstorm Sandy, including Monmouth County communities such as Keansburg, Middletown, Union Beach, Manasquan and Sea Bright.

 

Information Sessions are designed to provide one-on-one attention to address homeowners’ questions that arise during all stages in their RREM or LMI Program process. This Information Session is also offering assistance to property owners in LRRP, which is designed to restore rental units that were damaged by Superstorm Sandy and rent the units to low-to-moderate income (LMI) households at approved affordable rents following completion of repairs.

 

Information Sessions have been held in each of the nine counties the federal government determined were most impacted by Superstorm Sandy (Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union).

 

“We encourage applicants in our housing recovery programs to come to the Information Session if they have questions about their project. With experts on hand to provide answers and offer guidance, it is a great opportunity for applicants to get the information they need to keep moving forward with their recovery,” said New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Commissioner Charles A. Richman, whose Department administers many of the State’s Sandy housing recovery initiatives.  

 

Representatives from the DCA’s Sandy Recovery Division and Housing Recovery Centers, as well as RREM and LRRP Program Managers, who can answer specific questions about the RREM Program, LMI Program and LRRP, will be present. Additionally, representatives of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs will be available to discuss best practices in selecting a reliable contractor to undertake rebuilding work.

 

Housing Counselors from the Sandy Recovery Housing Counseling Program will also be in attendance to offer RREM Program and LMI Program participants free HUD-certified housing counseling services for a wide array of housing-related issues, including foreclosure prevention, mortgages, budgeting, and rental guidance.

 

Furthermore, information will be available about the Rental Assistance Program (RAP), which was launched last year to help homeowners in the RREM Program and LMI Program pay for temporary housing while their primary homes are being repaired, rebuilt or elevated. Through the RAP initiative, homeowners who have signed their grant agreement and meet other eligibility criteria are eligible for up to $1,300 per month for up to a total of 21 months of rental assistance.

 

The RREM Program is the largest of the housing recovery programs launched by the State following Superstorm Sandy. The program provides grants to Sandy-impacted homeowners to cover rebuilding costs up to $150,000 that are not funded by insurance, FEMA assistance, U.S. Small Business Administration loans, or other sources.

 

The LMI Homeowner Rebuilding Program provides reconstruction, rehabilitation and elevation assistance to Sandy-impacted homeowners Dolls Toys and playsets are an excellent way for children to stretch their imagination and learn the importance of caring of limited financial means whose storm-damaged primary residence is located in one of the nine most impacted counties as determined by the federal government. The program aims to provide assistance to those LMI homeowners who did not apply to the RREM Program.

 

The LRRP Program provides up to $50,000 per storm-damaged rental unit to assist eligible rental property owners in repairing their residential rental properties. To be eligible for the award, a landlord must rent the repaired unit(s) to LMI households after project completion.

 

For more information on the Information Session, applicants may contact the DCA’s Sandy Constituent Services Office by calling 609-292-3750 or by emailing sandy.recovery@dca.nj.gov.
