A Brigantine aid group received $100,000 in grant funding this week from the Robin Hood Foundation to help residents with Hurricane Sandy-related expenses.

The Rev. John Scotland, chairman of the BrigStrong long-term recovery group, said the New York City-based foundation came through with more funding after a prior award of $300,000 in March.

That funding was quickly distributed to about 100 households affected by October's storm.

This time, Scotland said, the group plans to raise income limits to help more residents.

"We had about 30 who just barely missed the last time," he said. "With the $100,000, we can fund those families."

Scotland said those interested in receiving the monetary grants should call the Community Center at 609-264-7350.
