HARTFORD, CT - Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced Thursday that more than $40 million in federal assistance to date has been approved to help individuals and businesses with disaster expenses since President Obama approved his Disaster Declaration request as a result of Storm Sandy.

“With more than $40 million in aid approved so far, it’s clear the damage we suffered from Storm Sandy was worse than anything we have seen in a number of years,” said Governor Malloy. “If you haven’t already, take the time to register with FEMA before February 12 so you can begin the disaster assistance process.”

To date, more than $40 million in federal disaster assistance has been approved to help Connecticut residents with disaster-related expenses:

More than 12,100 Connecticut residents in Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven, and New London counties, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, and the Mohegan Tribal Nation have registered for federal disaster assistance.
More than $11 million has been approved for housing assistance, including short-term rental assistance and home repair costs.
More than $865,000 has been approved to cover other essential disaster-related needs, such as medical and dental expenses and lost personal possessions.
More than $28.5 million in low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters and businesses has been approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Residents in Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties as well as businesses across the state who suffered damage from Storm Sandy are encouraged to register with FEMA by either calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or through www.DisasterAssistance.gov. For those with speech or hearing disabilities, the TTY number is 1-800-462-7585.
