Newly released documents show a company hired to oversee applications for a New Jersey home-rebuilding program after Superstorm Sandy billed the state $51 million over eight months before an agreement to end the deal.

New Orleans-based Hammerman Gainer Inc. had said it would run the program for the state for three years for a price of $68 million.

Documents laying out the dispute were made public late Wednesday by Fair Share Housing Center, an advocacy group that obtained them through an open public records request.

The company wants to collect another $18 million.

The state confirmed in January that HGI was no longer on the job.

This week, Community Affairs Commissioner Richard Constable told lawmakers that the firm had performance problems, but he did not elaborate.
