New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says more FEMA funding is on its way to help buy out homes impacted by Superstorm Sandy.

On Wednesday, Christie announced an $11.9 million dollar FEMA grant.

It will help with a buyout program targeting 1,000 properties in tidal areas affected by Sandy.

Three hundred properties that have repeatedly flooded are also targeted in the grant.

FEMA has already awarded nearly $29.5 million in grant money after Sandy.
