    Posted by Adam Gordon

    Contratiempos en los despliegues iniciales siguen obstaculizando el progreso.

    En el Segundo reporte anual del Estado de la Recuperación de Sandy publicado hoy, defensores de vivienda y de derechos civiles encontraron que la recuperación de Nueva Jersey luego de Sandy está muy lejos de ser completada, y recomendaron una serie de reformas para otorgar mayor transparencia y efectividad en los programas de recuperación de Nueva Jersey.
