U.S. Sends More Help for Shoreline Hit by Sandy

Issues & Policies

Eleven shoreline towns in Connecticut will benefit from 21 federally funded projects to rebuild and rehabilitate infrastructure impacted by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Damage from the storm more than two years ago is still “a reality these communities must face,” said Gov. Malloy.

With $30 million in grants from the federal Department of Housing (DOH), the projects will “restore a suitable living environment in disaster impacted communities … [by] adding resiliency to minimize damage from future storm events,” said the governor.

It’s the second round of federal dollars within the year to help restore Connecticut’s shoreline.

In Bridgeport, East Haven, Fairfield, Milford, New London, New Haven, Norwalk, Old Lyme, Stamford, Stratford, and West Haven, projects will help communities fight flooding, keep lights on, make roads and bridges safer, and protect homes.
