President Obama has signed a major disaster declaration for all eight Connecticut counties and the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribal lands as a result of last month’s snowstorm.  The declaration provides federal assistance to supplement state and local government recovery efforts,  and for certain private nonprofit organizations.

The declaration covers 72 hours in the February 8-11 period for cost-sharing for snow assistance in Hartford and New Haven Counties and 48 hours for the rest of the state.
