New Jersey officials say government entities in the state have been approved for $14.2 million in federal money for three major repairs related to Superstorm Sandy.

The state announced Friday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved the money.

The largest grant is $11.2 million for the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission to reimburse repairs that cost $14.9 million.

The state's Department of Environmental Protection is to get $1.9 million from FEMA toward a $2.6 million expense to clean 63,000 cubic yards of debris from state parks.

The Middlesex County Utilities Authority is getting $1.1 million in federal money to help pay for $1.5 million in repairs in its Sayreville pump station.
