Greetings from Jen Giattino for City Council
INFORMATION ON DISASTER RELIEF
FOR HUDSON COUNTY

The City of Hoboken Office of Emergency Management

advises residents and businesses who were impacted
by Hurricane Irene to document all damages and
repair costs and save all receipts.

The federal government is still in the process of making

damage assessments in New Jersey.
This includes aerial surveys and door-to-door evaluations.
The Zimmer Administration is advocating strongly,
along with federal elected representatives, for a
major disaster designation to allow affected
individuals in Hudson County to be eligible for
federal assistance.
Representatives from FEMA will be in Hudson County this
weekend to assess the damage. The Zimmer Administration
is working with Hudson County and advocating as strongly
as possible that federal officials visit Hoboken.
Residents or businesses who were impacted and
wish to make their homes or businesses available
for potential visits by FEMA may provide their name, address, and contact information to OEM Coordinator
Joel Mestre by emailing jmestre@hobokennj.org (preferred)
or calling 201-852-5446.
