Help is Still Available!

The State of New Jersey launched three new programs for property owners impacted by Hurricane Ida in March of 2023:

  • Homeowner Assistance Recovery Program (HARP): This program provides grants to owner-occupied properties to repair, rebuild, and/or elevate their storm-damaged home. The maximum assistance is $300k for a single family home.
  • Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA): This program provides supplemental rental assistance for low-income rental families who were impacted by Hurricane Ida for up to 24 months.
  • Housing Counseling and Legal Services: Provides supportive services, such as foreclosure prevention, relocation services, and debt management, and assists with application intake for CDBG-DR-funded programs to help impacted residents transition to more permanent housing.

You can apply for any of these services on the State’s website.

In April, a $20 million program for Small Rental Repair (SRRP) is planned to launch, offering zero-interest, forgivable loans to owners of small rental properties (less than 7 units) for repair, rebuilding and/or elevation.
