Hurricane Sandy Recovery
The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113–2) allocated $5,400,000,000 of Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG–DR) 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.
The first step that must be completed for the State to receive these funds is to prepare an Action Plan describing the State’s proposed expenditures. As soon as the Action Plan is completed, the public will be given an opportunity to comment. The Action Plan will be posted on this webpage for public review when available.
