Brigantine residents will receive $300,000 in grant funding from the Robin Hood Foundation for assistance with damage related to Hurricane Sandy.

There are plans to distribute the money to residents via grants ranging from $500 to $5,000, said John Scotland, chair of the BrigStrong committee, the city’s long-term recovery group.

“We’re hoping to help 300 households in Brigantine with significant support,” he said. “We’ll also be able to purchase construction supplies in bulk.”

Scotland said the grants can be used for temporary housing or to replace housing, furniture and appliances destroyed in the storm.

The foundation is a New York City-based charity that hosts a number of anti-poverty initiatives. Since Sandy, it has distributed about $55 million to organizations helping with Sandy relief.

Residents can apply for the grants by calling 609-264-7350.
