The Federal Emergency Management Agency is extending the deadline for victims of Superstorm Sandy to apply for disaster relief funds.
FEMA announced Thursday that it's extending the deadline until March 1. It was originally set to expire at the end of this month.
Those affected by the storm must first register with FEMA. The agency then helps determine what aid programs or referrals to other agencies a person may qualify for.
FEMA funds can cover rental assistance, critical home repairs and other disaster-related needs.
More than 57,000 New Jerseyans have applied for FEMA aid so far.
