The Division of Disaster Recovery and Mitigation promotes the long-term resilience of New Jersey’s communities by supporting initiatives to fortify housing, businesses, and infrastructure against severe weather events and flooding damage. Such initiatives include the Mitigation Assistance Program, which provides homeowners in flood-prone communities with funds to elevate their homes out of harm’s way, and the Atlantic City Resilience Program, a joint effort with the City of Atlantic City to strengthen the city’s infrastructure and public buildings to guard against repetitive flooding.
The Division is the Responsible Entity for more than $4 billion in federal funds the State of New Jersey received to recover from Superstorm Sandy, which hit the state on October 29, 2012. These funds come from the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and have been used to create Sandy recovery programs throughout state government.
