11/7/2013 - Hurricane Sandy Recovery

The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 allocated $5,400,000,000 of Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery funds for the purpose of assisting recovery in the most impacted and distressed areas declared a major disaster due to Hurricane Sandy.

In February, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the first allocation of funds to assist specific jurisdictions impacted by Hurricane Sandy. HUD advised the State of Connecticut that a total of three separate allocations will be made to affected jurisdictions with the CDBG funds appropriated by Congress for disaster relief.

In the first round, HUD allocated $71.8 million dollars to the State of Connecticut to assist the State’s recovery from Hurricane Sandy, particularly in the most impacted counties of Fairfield and New Haven counties.
