CT Gets 10 Days Of Federal Funding

President Barack Obama approved 100 percent reimbursement for 10 days of emergency power restoration and emergency public transportation assistance for the four shoreline counties that have already received a major disaster declaration.

This additional assistance includes reimbursement for the National Guard to conduct emergency power restoration, emergency public transportation, or direct essential support to these missions. 

Normally, the state would have to contribute about 25 percent to the cost of those operations, but this means it’s fully funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

“As we continue with the recovery process from Hurricane Sandy, I am very appreciative of President Obama’s commitment to the State of Connecticut and its residents.” Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said. “We continue to work to get the state back to normal following this devastating storm.”

Malloy is with U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in Bridgeport touring some of the damage along the shore.
