The American Red Cross has awarded a $2 million grant to Habitat for Humanity International to repair dozens of New Jersey homes damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

Red Cross officials said Habitat for Humanity International has developed a broad regional strategy in response to the devastation caused by the storm. It's working with five Habitat affiliates throughout the state to support and enable recovery and long-term sustainability of low-income affected families.

Details on the grant were announced Wednesday.

The grant money will be used to help repair at least 90 homes across Atlantic, Bergen, Monmouth and Ocean counties.
