HOBOKEN -- Governor Christie announced Sunday that FEMA aid will be awarded to all 21 counties in New Jersey.
Christie was in town addressing those who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Christie says that anyone in the state who suffered damages as a result of Hurricane Sandy should register for a FEMA assessment.
He said that in addition to FEMA aid for all 21 counties in New Jersey, disaster unemployment assistance will also be awarded to those who were unable to work because of the storm.
One of the major points the governor stressed was that even with federal assistance, the damage from Sandy won't be repaired overnight.
"Rebuilding is gonna be a long and difficult process. All the things I just talked about are trying to get back to normal in our day to day lives. We know that there's gonna be a lot of rebuilding that needs to be done and we have to work together and be patient about it," said the Governor.
Governor Christie went on to say that the recovery efforts made now will help to reach the goal of a better New Jersey.
