Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund

Damage to New Jersey from Hurricane Sandy has been well documented by national media.

But one of the stories not being told is the hardship suffered by many newspaper publishers in New Jersey who have served their communities for years, delivering essential news and information to their readers. Another untold story is the generosity of newspaper people helping others to cope with this disaster.

Newspapers across our state face severe damage to their offices and loss of equipment. Some newspaper employees have lost homes and personal belongings or suffered major damage. Despite this, they have produced outstanding hurricane coverage.

New Jersey Press Association – through New Jersey Press Foundation, our philanthropic arm – has established a fund to help distressed publishers.

To apply for relief funds

NJPA member newspapers that have experienced property damage
or loss due to Hurricane Sandy may apply for help through the
NJPF Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

Here is the application.
