Welcome to New Jersey Department of Community Affairs
Superstorm Sandy CDBG-DR Dashboard
New Jersey is recovering from the impact of Superstorm Sandy. Our residents are working to repair their homes, restore businesses, and ensure that communities are safe and protected. The State has several programs to aid in recovery. This website includes only programs funded with HUD CDBG-DR funds and provides a breakdown of the funding available, obligated and disbursed. For all Superstorm Sandy program data, including FEMA and other non-HUD funded programs, please visit the NJ Sandy Transparency site.

This site will be updated as programs launch and move into obligated phase, so that residents can see our progress in building a more resilient New Jersey.
