It’s official: New Haven County is a disaster. A “major” disaster.
So decreed President Barack Obama Tuesday.
That means federal aid can more easily flow to the county, as well as to Faifield, Middlesex, and New London counties, as well as the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Tribal nations in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
A White House press release stated:
“Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.
“Federal funding is available to state, Tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, for the counties of Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven, and New London and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Mohegan Tribal Nation located within New London County.
“Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures for all counties and Tribes within the state.”
