Connecticut to receive $31.14 million in storm aid


HARTFORD — Connecticut is receiving nearly $32 million in additional federal aid to fix multi-family housing, infrastructure and public facilities affected by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the some of the money will also be used by municipalities to plan for future storms. For instance, $100,000 will help fund a coastal resiliency study in Stratford.

This latest allotment comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s disaster recovery block grant program. Last year, the state received nearly $72 million. At the time, Bridgeport Mayor William Finch said the governor’s plan for allocating the money didn’t dedicate enough to repair multi-family housing and seawalls.

But Finch called Tuesday’s announcement “great news” and will help a large number of vulnerable Bridgeport residents living within the flood plain.
