New Jersey Realtors President Jeff Jones said the group applied and was approved for a disaster relief assistance grant from the Realtors Relief Foundation.

The funds are meant to assist qualified applicants with financial help for monthly mortgages expenses or rental costs.

“New Jersey has not seen this magnitude of destruction since Superstorm Sandy in 2012,” he said. “We thank the Realtors Relief Foundation for their quick action in approving our grant application so we can quickly distribute funds to those who need it most.”
