The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), has announced a competition for municipalities impacted by Superstorm Sandy to win grant money.

The DEP announced that municipalities in the nine counties most impacted by Hurricane Sandy can form teams to compete for $200,000 resilience-planning grants to address coastal and river-related flooding.

The grant competition is part of Resilient NJ, a new program administered through the DEP's Office of Coastal and Land Use Planning, to identify and implement innovative regional solutions to address coastal and river-related flooding.

Officials say they encourage eligible local governments to develop innovative ideas to address flooding in their communities that will protect lives and property by strengthening overall resilience.
