WASHINGTON -- Two Jewish-affiliated groups announced new relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy.


The interfaith Isaiah Fund is giving $1 million to low-income urban communities damaged during last October's hurricane.


The money is expected to jump-start investment, according to an announcement made during a gathering in New York of disaster recovery experts and area community groups on March 6.


“After Hurricane Sandy, many of us were focused on meeting immediate critical needs for food, water, clothing and other essentials,” said Alan van Capelle, CEO of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, which houses and manages the Isaiah Fund.


“Our hope is that the $1 million investment announced today can have a deep impact in communities across New York and New Jersey that are still reeling from the effects of Sandy,” he said in a statement.
