IMPORTANT MESSAGE Regarding the the June Flood event from NJOEM.
Please See state and Fema findings :
The June 19 to 20, 2019 Severe Storm Event Joint FEMA/NJOEM/SBA Public Assistance and Individual Assistance PDAs were performed on July 16 to 19, 2019 in the counties of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester.
Please see the attached, June 19 to 20, 2019 Severe Storm Event Joint FEMA/NJOEM Public Assistance Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDA) FINAL Results:
-At the conclusion of the Joint PDAs, on July 19, 2019, the public owned property damage totals were $10,106,604.18. These damages are much lower than the NJ State PA Damage Threshold of $13,187,841.00
-Since the results of the Joint FEMA/NJOEM Public Assistance PDA were still short of the NJ State PA Damage Threshold required to request a Presidential Disaster Declaration, NJOEM granted an extension.
-The attached June 19 to 20, 2019 Severe Storm Event Joint FEMA/NJOEM Public Assistance Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDA) FINAL Results total damages are still only $10,106,604.18, more than $3 million short of the required NJ State Threshold.
Due to the above facts and the attached Joint PA PDA results, NJOEM has decided NOT to request a Presidential Public Assistance Disaster Declaration for the June 19 to 20, 2019 Severe Storm Event (see attached PDA Guidance).
August 2018 and the June 2019 Storm Events Joint Individual Assistance PDAs.
-A request for a Presidential Individual Assistance Disaster Declaration for the August 2018 storm event was submitted to FEMA and subsequently denied.
-The denied August 2018 storm event had much more IA damages compared to the recent June 19 to 20, 2019 storm event.
Due to these facts and the listed Individual Assistance Joint PDAs Comparison, NJOEM has decided NOT to request a Presidential Individual Assistance Disaster Declaration for the June 19 to 20, 2019 Severe Storm Event.
The Small Business Administration PDAs did yield enough damages to private property and businesses required for a request of an SBA Disaster Declaration in the counties of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester. NJOEM is moving forward with an SBA Disaster Declaration request for this event for the counties of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester.

It is a Disgrace! What about the Shop rite gift cards Shop rite gave the town .. did they give them out yet?
I wasn’t even asked how much my damages were! I bet we would get to that other 3 million if they asked people how much they had to pay out. I’m sure there are a lot of people in the affected areas that don’t even know how to apply for this. I didn’t know how or even that there might be assistance available for about a month!! I thought once my homeowners turned me down, that was it and I was out of luck. What I don’t understand is if they extended the reporting period, Why are they just giving up? I’m still going to contact NJOEM And make sure we’re on their list and check assistance status.
Are you kidding
Reading this seem like everyone got shitted on by the government...
What a disgrace

Residents that have sustained any type of damage/loss from the recent flooding events.
The Borough officials have been working closely with the County Office Of Emergency Management and have done our due diligence making sure that if and when any financial assistance is made available that you will have the opportunity to apply. We are currently awaiting for direction from FEMA as they are currently reviewing the preliminary data. It is not guaranteed that funding will become available, however we are remaining hopeful.
In the meanwhile you should have contacted your insurance company, if you did and were denied keep that notification, document and keep track all expenditures and start to compile quotes for the repairs so you will be ahead of what most likely will be required. This will help to speed the process.
We will provide further information as soon as becomes available. ... See MoreSee Less

Hmm wonder how that happened
People are crazy
Borough officials are currently assessing damages that occurred throughout the community from the recent storm events that has affected several areas of our community. There has been and will be more assessment teams visiting the affected areas. We have been working with County, State and Federal Officials to determine what type of assistance will be available to our residents. In case federal or other funding becomes available and in order to serve out residents, we would appreciate it if you could provide us the following information: name, address, estimate of cost in damages, and contact information. The best way to provide us this information would be to send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org It could also be dropped off to the front office of the Borough Hall. As a reminder we suggest that you document all damages with pictures for any future claim.
