TOMS RIVER – Participants in the RREM, LMI, and LRRP programs are invited to an information session to be held on August 15 from 4-7 p.m. in the L. Manuel Hirshblond Meeting Room of the Toms River Municipal Building, 33 Washington Street.

This will be the 45th Housing Recovery Information Session, and the fifth in Toms River. It will focus on homeowners participating in the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program and the Low- to Moderate-Income (LMI) Homeowner Rebuilding Program, as well as rental property owners participating in the Landlord Rental Repair Program (LRRP).

In addition, there will be information available for the Rental Assistance Program (RAP), which provides funds for people to live in temporary housing while their homes are being renovated or elevated.

“We encourage participants in our housing recovery programs to come to the Information Session if they have questions about their project. With experts on hand to provide answers and offer guidance, it is a great opportunity for participants to get the information they need to keep moving forward with their recovery,” said New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Commissioner Charles A. Richman.

According to the DCA, approximately 2,650 participants have attended previous Information Sessions offered since October 2014 in the nine counties (Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union) most impacted by Sandy.
