NOFA for Housing Counseling Services to assist applicants in CDBG-DR housing and rental programs recover from Superstorm Sandy


The Sandy Recovery Division is part of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. It manages the majority of the federal funds being used to assist the State in recovering from Superstorm Sandy. These funds come from the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Division is committed to addressing the long-term needs of New Jersey’s Sandy-impacted residents and communities through programs designed to help homeowners, tenants, landlords, developers and local governments. 


The Sandy Recovery Division is seeking qualified organizations to provide services to applicants in CDBG-DR housing and rental programs.
