Conn. To Open 4 Sandy Centers In Shoreline Towns
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Federal money remains to help shoreline residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy last year.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the state will open four centers on Thursday in East Haven, Fairfield, Milford and Norwalk to help homeowners seeking $30 million in a rehabilitation and rebuilding program.
Staff will help residents who don’t have computers and can’t apply online.
Assistance of $10,000 to $150,000 is available to replace and rehabilitate homes and make homes more resilient to storm damage. Eligible expenses are those not covered by insurance, federal emergency aid or other funding.
Connecticut was awarded about $72 million from Washington to help residents affected by Sandy. Of that, $30 million is to help homeowners repair damage.
The state also has $26 million to rehabilitate and rebuild low and moderate-income multifamily homes.
