Robin Hood Announces $9.59 Million In Latest Round Of Hurricane Sandy Relief Grants; Includes $5.275 Million For Housing Support

Shore Aid Middlesex County, NJ $25,000 Shore Aid was established to help low-income families who were displaced by Hurricane Sandy in several communities, including Old Bridge and South Amboy.  This grant will go toward home repairs and replacement furnishings for houses damaged in those towns.

Tri-City Peoples Corporation Essex County, NJ $35,000 Tri-City is a community development corporation with a small construction staff serving parts of Newark, Irvington, and East Orange.  Many of their clients are elderly homeowners whose residences sustained damage but did not render them uninhabitable.  Because these homeowners live on a low fixed income, they do not have the cash to fund the portion of repairs not covered by their insurance.  This grant will allow Tri-City to complete those repairs that hover near the threshold of their deductible.

21 Plus Ocean County, NJ $10,000 21 Plus is an Ocean County nonprofit that provides services to people with developmental disabilities.  As a result of Sandy, two of their clients, who had recently moved into an independent apartment, were displaced and lost all of their possessions.  This grant will re-establish them in a new apartment, providing them with all the necessary furnishings as well as medical supplies and pantry staples.

United Church of Praise International Ministries Staten Island $70,000 United Church of Praise International Ministries serves the North Shore communities of Staten Island.  This grant will allow them to provide direct assistance to displaced families helping with security deposits, first-month rental assistance, home repairs, as well as new furnishings and appliances.

Vision Long Island Long Island $65,000 This grant will allow Vision Long Island to fund the costs of materials and supplies required for the demolition, removal of debris, and rebuilding projects for 26 homes in Freeport, Lindenhurst and Mastic Beach.  Vision will work with Friends of Freeport ( Freeport), Lindy Manpower ( Lindenhurst) and Jubilee Resource Center ( Mastic Beach) to manage volunteers, supply building materials, tools and protective equipment, and organize the overall demo and repair process.

Where to Turn New York City $30,000 Where to Turn provides an array of services to families on Staten Island.  This grant will enable them to purchase sheetrock and lumber for residents of limited financial means in their community, and will help Where to Turn enhance their website so they can connect more people and organizations with Sandy-relief services.

Young Families of Island Park Hurricane Relief Long Island $150,000 Founded to raise money for families of limited financial means affected by the storm, Island Park Hurricane Relief seeks to provide families who are still displaced or are vulnerably housed with $1,000 in aid.  This grant will provide 150 families with $1,000 in the form of gift cards, temporary housing payments, or payment towards reconstruction costs.
