FEMA Extends Hurricane Ida Request for Public Assistance Deadline

The New Jersey State Police announced that FEMA has approved New Jersey’s request to extend the Request for Public Assistance (RPA) deadline for Hurricane Ida relief.
 The new deadline is varied for each county as follows:

  • November 4 for Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset Counties;
  • November 9 for Essex, Hudson, Mercer, and Union Counties; and
  • November 10 for Morris County.

The application procedures used to process grants require that the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management submit completed RPAs through the Grants Portal (GP) program delivery system to the Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO) for each potential sub-recipient requesting public assistance.
 
Applicants must use the FEMA Grants Portal. In order to register, please create your RPA. More information and questions can be obtained on specific subjects:
