Christie announces $300 million federal buy out for flood risk home damaged by Sandy

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says he will use $300 million in federal funding to buy out homeowners whose properties have flooded repeatedly.

The buyout program begins in July officials expect to buy about one-thousand homes along the Jersey coast.

Then there would be no more building as the land would be preserved as wetlands.
