For Sandy's Homeless, Lives Of Anxiety In Hotels

"We're there to fill the gap between the devastation that you encountered and getting you to a more permanent solution," said Michael Byrne, the FEMA official supervising Superstorm Sandy recovery in New York.

The process of figuring out how to help homeless Sandy victims find a more permanent solution was delayed by Congress' slow passage of the hurricane recovery bill. New Jersey has set aside 1,000 Section 8 federal housing vouchers for low-income families displaced by the storm and currently living in hotels.

New Jersey created dozens of housing units at Fort Monmouth, a former military installation, for Sandy victims.

Both FEMA and New Jersey have set up websites to help connect people displaced by the storm with rental listings.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is working with state and local officials to help find long-term housing for displaced people, according to a spokesman for HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan who could not give details on specific plans.
