Governor Malloy is announcing plans for the release and use of $82.5 million in federal relief funding to address critical needs from those affected by Superstorm Sandy.
Funding by way of the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery will go toward repairs and reconstruction of single-and-multi-family homes, infrastructure, and public facilities.
That totals $72 million.
In addition, $10.5 million is being earmarked for unmet protective, case management, housing, and related service needs.
Some $373 million in federal aid has been approved to assist the state with Sandy related expenses.
