Connecticut could be getting millions of dollars from HUD to help with storm Sandy repairs.

Almost 72-millions dollars to help Connecticut with storm Sandy recovery, but who will get it? Gov. Malloy has submitted a plan to HUD — the US Dept of Housing and Urban Development – and requested an expedited review in hopes of getting the money sooner.

Of the almost 72-million dollars, about 56-million will go to homeowners and low- and moderate-income family housing. 4-million is slated for local businesses, and 2-million each to building repairs and future damage prevention. An additional 4-million is for unspecified health and safety risks.

The HUD grant is part of the Community Development Block Grant, Disaster Recovery program. Funding can be used for repairs along the state’s coastal counties.
