New Jersey residents who suffered damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida have an additional month to apply for federal assistance. The federal disaster agency moved the deadline to register for help to Jan. 5, 2022, for homeowners and renters in 12 counties. 

Visit DisasterAssistance.gov to register for a chance to receive an average grant of $5,000 to $8,000 to cover rent, pay for home repairs, replace property or address other needs that are not covered by insurance. Assistance is available for people living in Bergen, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Union and Warren counties.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will also keep open two disaster recovery centers in Essex and Union counties to help flood victims complete forms, fill out Small Business Administration loans, check the status of applications, or refer them to other organizations for additional aid.
