Keeping Montclair Residents Informed

FEMA: Ida Disaster Relief and Recovery
Thanks to our collective advocacy, along with County Executive, Joseph N DiVincenzo Jr and Governor Phil Murphy we have been successful in qualifying Essex County and all those who have been devastated in Montclair to be eligible for FEMA relief funding.

For those in need of any assistance because of the storm, we stand ready to help. Please reach out to us at 973-744-1400. I have included links for specific help below as well.
Vehicle Relief and Recovery 
New Jersey residents who lost a vehicle and need assistance accessing essential services can text "NJIDARIDE" to 898-211 to request a Lyft or Uber ride. 

Those without access to a cell phone can dial 2-1-1 from any phone line. Thank you to Governor Phil Murphy, Lyft and Uber for their assistance in our recovery effort.


I had the chance to see the work being done by amazing people to get our schools ready to open. SEE MORE
