Christie announces new voucher program to help Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:

Some new help is on the way for those still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

Tuesday Governor Chris Christie announced the "Working Families' Living Expenses voucher program," a $57 million rental assistance program for families affected by Hurricane Sandy. These funds will be distributed by county social service boards and other agencies.

These agencies will then supply sandy affected New Jersey residents with vouchers that can be used for temporary housing costs, maintaining a permanent resident and obtaining basic household items like beds or refrigerators. The program is meant to provide relief for homeowners and renters whose primary homes were damaged, forcing them to rent elsewhere or pay mortgages on damaged houses.

The voucher program provides six months of housing and is capped at $15,000 per household.
