FAIRFAX, Va., July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The State of New Jersey’s Office of Community Affairs recently awarded ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a global consulting and digital services provider, a one-year, contract extension to continue providing housing, infrastructure and economic development support to the state’s Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts.
ICF will continue to provide a wide range of services to help the state effectively implement its Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program in key areas including policy development, direct technical support, assistance with the administration of grants to individuals and state agencies, data analysis, reporting, resilience planning, training, communication/outreach and compliance monitoring.
ICF will also take on some additional construction management tasks to assist the state in closing out homeowner projects and helping homeowners recover from incidents of contractor fraud.
“ICF has served as a key partner in helping New Jersey move its recovery programs forward at a historically fast pace,” said Andy Zehe, vice president for ICF. “We have an outstanding record of compliance with the extremely complex federal requirements surrounding DBG-DR programs. We look forward to working with our state partners to continue to help the citizens of New Jersey in their community rebuilding efforts.”
Since 2013, ICF has helped implement over 30 recovery programs across the State of New Jersey under its $4.2 billion CDBG-DR program. During this time, ICF’s disaster recovery experts ensured CDBG-DR funding was deployed where it was most needed, helped maximize the use of federal funds from all sources for recovery, and ensured strong compliance with a complicated web of federal regulations.
For over 20 years, ICF has worked with federal, state and local communities to help them manage large-scale disaster recovery efforts. ICF’s disaster recovery experts focus on making sure the work is done right, fast, and in a way that improves the resilience of affected communities to resist future disasters.
