(AP) A New Jersey city whose Democratic mayor alleged that GOP Gov. Chris Christie's administration threatened to hold up Superstorm Sandy aid if she wouldn't support a development project doesn't appear to have been slighted by the state's allocations so far.


But a spokesman for Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says the problem isn't how much the city received from programs so much as which storm-relief programs the state has funded.


Hoboken has received more than $300,000 from a pair of grant programs, one for storm-related planning and the other to find alternate energy sources in case of major outages. Those amounts are typical of the programs.


State officials have said most of the initial federal Sandy aid is going to rebuilding what was lost and more resiliency programs will come later.
