TRENTON, N.J. --The Federal Emergency Management Agency reminds state agencies and local jurisdictions that the State of New Jersey has extended the deadline to Oct. 31 to complete debris removal and emergency work under FEMA’s PublicAssistance program.

The extension provides extra time for eligible state agencies, local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations to complete their debris removal and emergency work projects.

Under the Public Assistance program, funds are made available to the State of New Jersey, which then distributes grant money to the applicants based on a cost share.
