The federal government plans to distribute $2.5 billion to N.Y., N.J., and cities affected by Superstorm Sandy in the third and final round of a flexible grant program, reports The Star-Ledger. Nearly $882 million has been earmarked for N.J.; $606 million for N.Y. state; and $994 million for New York City. Connecticut and Rhode Island will also receive more aid.

N.J. lawmakers are questioning why N.Y. has received more than twice the amount of aid than their state. According to The Star-Ledger, in the first two rounds of funding, the federal government has allocated nearly $3.3 billion for N.J. and more than $7 billion for N.Y. and New York City. N.J. officials told The Star-Ledger nearly $18 billion in unmet needs for housing, economic development, and infrastructure will remain after the second round of funding is spent.
