State officials will return to Little Egg Harbor Township’s Municipal Building today to meet with Hurricane Sandy victims and assist with funding grant options in rebuilding.

Representatives from the state Department of Community Affairs and the Economic Development Authority met Tuesday with homeowners and business owners to discuss assistance programs available through the federal Community Development Block Grants.

Representatives will provide information today on assistance available through the Stronger New Jersey Business Loan Program and the “reNew Jersey Stronger” Housing Initiative.

The agencies said those who are attending the event should come with documents pertaining to the issue they are seeking help with.

Representatives will then be at the Ocean Acres Community Center in Stafford Township on Thursday to meet with affected residents.

Lisa M. Ryan, director of Strategic Communications for the state Department of Community Affairs said representatives will return to Little Egg today because Tuesday’s Mobile Outreach event had been announced by township officials as taking place Wednesday.

“We thank the township for accommodating our outreach team today and we will be back tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to honor the event date the township communicated to residents in order to reach as many Little Egg Harbor households as possible,” Ryan said.
