New Jersey Sens. Bob Menendez and Cory Booker on Friday announced more than $8 million in funding to elevate flood-prone homes in Cape May and Essex counties, including $3 million in Ocean City.
The funding, provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will go toward seven multifamily homes in Ocean City with a total of 52 units.
“The elevation of flood-prone homes is an important part of New Jersey’s long-term resiliency efforts and provides families much-needed peace of mind,” Booker said in a news release. “This federal investment will strengthen New Jersey communities, help mitigate against future disasters and save lives.”
