The affects of Superstorm Sandy are still being felt in the tri-state area and recovery is an on-going process. In light of the circumstances the URA has extended the application deadline for relief funds until March 21. If you, another signed member, or even a Rutgers student are still suffering because of Superstorm Sandy and have not yet applied for funds from the URA please click here to download the application form provided by AFTNJ; a copy can also be found in the URA print newsletter that was sent out in February. Make sure to fax the completed form and supporting documents to the URA at 732–745-0400 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org, not to AFTNJ.
For Rutgers Students — on the application form where it says “Union Local Name” you should write in “Rutgers student”, the college you are attending and program of study. Sign where it says “member signature” but cross out “Member” and write “Student”.
Be sure the fax or email is sent to the URA and not AFTNJ. Please note that the committee will issue grants based on you meeting the criteria and on the availability of funds.
