JCP&L Scam Alert PDF Print E-mail

The Toms River Police Department has had at least six incidents recently where local businesses and residents have been the victim of a fraud scheme in which a suspect identifies themselves as a Jersey Central Power and Light employee.  One local business was contacted by phone and told that they had an overdue bill in the amount of $2,279 and that if a cash payment was not made, their electricity would be shut off.  The business owner knew that he was not in arrears so he phoned JCP&L and they confirmed that he was being scammed. One business unfortunately fell victim to the fraud and reported paying that scammers by way of “Money Pack” cards.

 

We urge our residents to be cautious when giving out personal information over the phone and to take notes during any suspicious calls that may be helpful to investigators.  Jersey Central Power and Light advises residents to contact them directly at the phone number on their bill to check the status of their account, if they are ever contacted over the phone.  To read the full release, click here.

 
Half of Your RREM Grant Is Available Now! PDF Print E-mail

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently approved a major change in the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program. This change allows you to receive an advance payment of 50 percent of your RREM grant once you sign your grant agreement (this is for Pathway B applicants who are hiring their own contractor). In order to receive this advance, all you have to do is certify that you have engaged a general contractor or design professional under contract. The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) then verifies that the contractor you retained is licensed in New Jersey and not debarred from work. A check for 50 percent of your RREM grant (minus your reimbursement) will then be sent to you to pay your contractor. This advance will considerably speed your repair and reconstruction work so you can get back in your home faster.

Once your contractor invoices or provides receipts for eligible costs that exceed this initial 50 percent advance, you may submit up to two additional payment requests for the remaining balance of your RREM grant.

For more information, please contact your Housing Advisor or call the housing recovery hotline at 1-855-SANDYHM
