State Receives Million-Plus In Snow Aid

State agencies, local governments and certain eligible nonprofit groups will receive more than a million dollars in reimbursement for their costs in the January 11-12 snowstorm.

Governor Dannel Malloy says the Federal Emergency Management Agency has allocated $1,045,295 to pay 75 per cent of approved costs for emergency protection expenses — including snow assistance,  debris removal, and repair or replacement of public facilities damaged by the storm.  He says additional federal funds will be made available as FEMA continues to process the applications.

In March, Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, New Haven, New London and Tolland Counties and the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribal lands were ruled eligible for assistance.  The state is appealing denial of the disaster declaration for Windham and Middlesex counties.
