Says Agency’s Ruling Will Leave Gap in Jersey Shore and Hinder Rebuilding
Senator Jennifer Beck today expressed outrage over the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) rejection of Ocean Grove’s request for aid in the wake of Sandy. FEMA determined that the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association is a private non-profit organization and not eligible for public assistance dollars.
In a letter sent to FEMA in early January from Beck and other legislators, the lawmakers made it clear that the boardwalk in Ocean Grove has received funding from FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers in the past.
“FEMA’s Decision today is not only disappointing, it is unacceptable,” Beck said. “The Ocean Grove Boardwalk serves as an essential public thoroughfare and connects Bradley Beach to Asbury Park. It provides access to emergency services and augments flood protection measures. We will be appealing this ruling immediately.”
