What is the RREM Program?

The State of New Jersey has developed a program to help homeowners affected by Superstorm Sandy with $1.34 billion in federal funds to help eligible homeowners. The grants are for primary home residence, and for the necessary activities to repair or rebuild their Superstorm Sandy impacted homes. The RREM Program grant awards provide for reconstruction, rehabilitation, elevation and/or other mitigation activities. The federally funded program has designated approved builders, to ensure the quality and success of the work performed. Homeowners that participate in the RREM Program must comply with federal elevation requirements for structures located in flood zones.

The RREM Program allocates awards based on the cost of the repairs and any additional assistance received by the homeowner. Awards range up to $150,000, helping to "fill the gap" from other sources such as insurance, FEMA, SBA, and non-profit organizations.
