Christie visiting shore stores to promote grants
Governor Chris Christie is visiting a couple shore stores and a restaurant to promote a grant program designed to help businesses damaged in Superstorm Sandy last year.
The Stronger NJ program is giving businesses grants and forgivable loans up to $50,000 to pay for costs associated with the storm.
Businesses that sustained physical damage costing at least $5,000 are eligible.
The program is run by the state using money provided by the federal government.
