The federal government requires that all construction work done in Sandy recovery programs funded with CDBG Disaster Recovery dollars must be reviewed in a tiered environmental assessment to ensure projects undertaken will have no significant impact on the environment. Therefore, no construction work can begin on properties until all levels of environmental review have been complete and found to be in compliance. Public notices about the environmental review records for recovery projects are published in English and Spanish in statewide and regional newspapers in New Jersey.

Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with a project’s environmental review determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments within a set public comment period to:

Sandy Recovery Division, Constituent Services
New Jersey Department of Community Affairs
101 South Broad Street
PO Box 823
Trenton, NJ 08625-0823

Public comments may also be submitted via email by clicking on the email address in the box at the top of this webpage. When submitting a public comment, please be sure to reference the project name and location in the comment.
