Three Jersey shore towns will split $22.5 million in grants to help them pay for essential services as they recover from Superstorm Sandy.
3 Jersey Shore Towns Get Post-Sandy Grants
Gov. Chris Christie's office on Friday announced the disbursement of Essential Services Grants to Atlantic City, Toms River, and Sea Bright.
The money is designed to help hard-hit communities avoid layoffs and maintain police and fire protection, public works programs, and other essential services as they continue to rebuild from the storm, which hit almost a year ago.
Earlier this year more than $44.5 million in Essential Services Grants were made to 11 Sandy-impacted local governmental entities.
