Programs In Progress

New Jersey

Rehabilitation, Reconstruction, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program

JWTC was selected as a top scoring builder for the RREM Program in the first pool of contractors released by the Department of Community Affairs (DCA). As an approved contractor for the program, JWTC will assist homeowners during the state’s rebuilding efforts in all 9 counties of New Jersey. The (DCA) has contracted with the RREM to assist in qualifying Homeowners as well as working with them throughout the construction process. The RREM Program will work with homeowners to develop specifications for the work to be completed, obtain bids from a builder, assign a builder to each Homeowner, inspect the construction while it is in progress, and approve payments to the builder. Currently, we are assisting in rebuilding communities in the Counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Union, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, and Cape May. Please contact us for assistance with your project.

New York

DASNY: NY Rising Housing Recovery Program

JWTC has been involved in helping rebuild communities in all five boroughs of New York City since December of 2012. Currently, the NY Rising Housing Recovery Program is qualifying applicants to participate in repair, rehabilitation, or reconstruction and assessing the necessary work. In mid-October 2013, approved Homeowners received award letters notifying them of the grants they can expect to receive from the Program for allowable Construction Activities. Following receipt of acceptance, homeowners are permitted to select an eligible Contractor to perform the required scope(s) of work for the project. JWTC welcomes the opportunity to speak to you about your repair needs. Contact us.

Bastrop Fires

JWTC was the only contractor selected to complete the final reconstruction phase, which includes the required environmental Houston Toad Training. According to the Texas Governor’s website, “2011 was one of the worst wildfire seasons in recent memory. While extensive areas of Texas experienced damage from the 2011 wildfire season, the most significant losses and major damage to homes, businesses, public lands (parks) and other public facilities (hospitals & schools) stemmed from a series of devastating wildfire events within the counties that were Presidentially declared disasters in 2011 by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)”. Completion of this project is scheduled for early 2014.

Hurricane Ike

JWTC was proud to complete the first home in the South East Texas Regional Planning Commission (SETRPC) area for the Ike Disaster Recovery project. During this rebuilding project, our dutiful efforts established us as the top producing builder in the program. The CDBG-DR program for Hurricane Ike began in 2011 and continues to rebuild communities along the Texas Gulf Coast. Currently, we are assisting in rebuilding communities in Jefferson County, Orange County, Hardin County, Bastrop County, Liberty County, Jasper County, Angelina County, Houston County, Nacogdoches County, Newton County, Polk County, Sabine County, San Augustine County, San Jacinto County, Shelby County, Trinity County, and Tyler County.

Hurricane Dolly

Hurricane Dolly was a tropical cyclone that made landfall in extreme southern Texas in July 2008.  It made landfall on July 23 in South Padre Island, Texas, with 85 mph winds.  The storm caused 212,000 customers to lose power in Texas, and dropped estimated amounts of over 16 inches of rain in some areas.  Hurricane Dolly caused an estimated $1.05 billion in damage and is considered to be the most destructive hurricane to hit the Rio Grande Valley in 41 years and the worst hurricane to hit Brownsville since the 1980's.  Sustained winds were estimated at 100 mph with gusts of 120 mph when Dolly made landfall.  At the height of the disaster, some 155,000 homes were without electricity.  The damage in South Texas was much more destructive than what was predicted, partially caused by tornadoes spawned by the storm. Coastal counties approved for HUD-CDBG rebuilding include: Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy Counties. Continuing with our efficient pace, JWTC completed the first home for this project in 17 days.
