The center is located at the Camden County Public Works complex at 2311 Little Egg Harbor Road.  It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week.

FEMA staff will be on site to assist anyone who needs help recovering from Hurricane Sandy in the following areas:

1. Rental payments for temporary housing can be made to families whose homes are unlivable.  Initial assistance may be provided for up to three months for homeowners, and at least one month for renters.  Assistance may be extended if requested after the initial period based on a review of individual applicant requirements.
