National Flood Insurance Program Deadline Extended for Filing Claims
FEMA has granted a six-month extension for National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policyholders affected by Hurricane Sandy to file proof-of-loss claims.
The deadline is Oct. 29, 2014.
NFIP usually requires policyholders to submit a fully documented, signed and sworn proof-of-loss claim within 60 days from the date of their loss.
The magnitude of the Sandy disaster is the reason for this extension that will give policyholders additional time to file claims. This is the third six-month extension.

I am responding to your inquiry on the status of the Barnegat Inlet to Little Egg Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project. Everyone here at the District understands the growing concern on when the actual construction of the project will begin. Currently we are still working through many complicated requirements to get the remaining portions of Long Beach Island ready for construction. Our project team has worked to expedite every aspect of the process. Some of these steps include completing a thorough review and re-evaluation of the project; coordinating with environmental resource agencies; and working with our sponsor, the NJDEP, on the necessary agreements to proceed and their efforts to obtain the required public access and beach easements. Unfortunately, it has taken more time than originally anticipated to get it all done. We understand the urgency to get the project constructed and are working as quickly as we can to get the project completed while making sure we get it all done right adhering to all of the applicable laws. Though we do not have a revised detailed schedule to release at this time, it is not likely that a contract would get awarded prior to Labor Day and actual construction begin before the fall of 2014.
As always I am available to discuss any questions you may have and will continue to update you on our progress to get this critical storm damage reduction project fully constructed.
