All 21 counties remain under the State of Emergency in response to Tropical Storm Ida.
President Biden has declared that a major disaster exists in New Jersey after the remnants of Hurricane Ida caused flooding and devastation across New Jersey last week.
This declaration makes federal funding available to people affected by the storm in Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset counties. This assistance covers temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs designed to help people and business owners recover. FEMA assessment teams are on the ground evaluating the needs of other counties. We’re working with the federal government to ensure our residents, businesses, and municipalities get the assistance they deserve.
According to the Governor's NJ Disaster Declaration, Union County WAS NOT included in the initial report. FEMA is still working with the Offices of Emergency Management to assess damage across the State, so it is very important that Union County homeowners report their damages to www.nj.gov/ida
