A fraction of federal aid allocated to help with Hurricane Sandy relief has been distributed

NEW JERSEY -

Just 1/3 of the federal aid allocated for housing help following Hurricane Sandy has been distributed.

The state's Community Affairs Department released the figure after an analysis by two housing advocacy groups found that the figure was 24%. The housing groups say the state has not moved quickly enough to distribute the $1.16 billion in housing aid the federal government awarded in May. The state says it was delayed by congressional inaction after last year's storm.
