TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - State and federal disaster recovery experts are planning to meet with local emergency management officers to tell them about applying for disaster assistance related to a storm that walloped parts of southern New Jersey in June.

The meetings are scheduled for next week.

They’re not open to the public, but they are a step in recovery efforts.

A disaster has been declared for Atlantic, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties for the June 23 storm that did an estimated $15 million of damage.

Local governments can receive up to 75 percent of the cost of debris removal, emergency protective measures and fixing public facilities from the federal government.
