That's the message one Hurricane Sandy victim has for people who still find it impossible to make progress on their personal recovery from the storm.
During Superstorm Sandy, Fred Shaffer’s Little Egg Harbor home was destroyed when it took on 4 feet of water. As a result, he and his wife were forced to live in a trailer next their uninhabitable home for the past 18 months while they worked to rebuild a new house, according to Chasing New Jersey on My9.
Shaffer said finally they’re set to move into their new home any day now and it was all made possible by a $150,000 grant they received from the Department of Community Affairs $600 million dollar Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation program set up to aid for New Jersey Sandy victims, according to My9.
“On October 16, I was called up to Lakewood and as I walked in they just said to me, ‘you’re Fred Shaffer congratulations, you’re getting the grant’,” he explained to My9.
