How to apply to the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund

From the desk of Councilwoman Jen Giattino:

Greetings from Jen Giattino for City Council
 
Dear Family, Friends & Neighbors,
 
I know for many of us the FEMA, insurance, SBA loan
process has been extremely disappointing and frustrating.

The Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund has available grants.
To apply go to  www.rebuildhoboken.org.

To qualify:
  1. You must be a Hoboken Resident
  2. A storm related net loss of $5000 (loss after Insurance,
    Fema and other relief)
  3. Application must be received by January 20th, 2013
    Online: Click Here

    By mail: Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund, 518 Park Avenue,
    Suite1R, Hoboken, NJ 07030
The maximum grant to be distributed will be $5,000 and may well
be less depending on the amount of money donated to the Fund
and the number of eligible applicants.


A Resource Center will be opening  on the corner of First and Park
(101 Park). The center will be staffed with volunteers and operated
by Hoboken's Relief Coordinator, Carly Ringer.
 
This is not a FEMA office but rather a location for residents to go
and find out what resources are available to help them recover
from the storm.

Please forward this email. It is important that we get an accurate
count of damaged units in order to ensure Hoboken gets it fair
share of funding.


Happy New Year,
Jen
