Mayor Gerard P. Scharfenberger urges residents recovering from Superstorm Sandy to visit the Tonya Keller Community Center on Tuesday, June 25th to meet with representatives from the Department of Community Affairs (DCA).

With the recent announcements of assistance available through the Stronger NJ Business Loan Program and the “reNew Jersey Stronger” Housing Initiative, the Christie Administration will host a Mobile CDBG center on Tuesday, June 25 from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm in Middletown at Tonya Keller Community Center located at 50 Bray Avenue, to discuss these latest recovery programs and assist local homeowners and businesses in their recovery and rebuilding efforts.

Representatives from the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) will be on hand to meet with affected residents and answer questions related to the housing and business assistance programs available through the federal Community Development Block (CDBG) grants. Homeowners and business owners interested in attending can expedite the process by bringing relevant documentation related to the issue they are facing.

The “reNew Jersey Stronger” Housing Initiative was launched May 24, 2013 to encourage and assist homeowners to reconstruct and resettle in their primary residences. The Stronger NJ Business Loan Program will be launched in July to help local businesses recover and expand within storm-impacted communities.
