Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced Sunday in a press release that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) extended the deadline to register for Storm Sandy disaster assistance from December 31, 2012 to January 28, 2013.
“With more than $20 million in federal aid approved already, there is clearly a need for many residents for assistance,” said Governor Malloy. “Extending this deadline will ensure that any resident or business affected by Storm Sandy has ample time to apply for assistance.”
More than $20 million in federal disaster assistance has already been approved to help Connecticut residents with disaster-related expenses.
Residents in Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties as well as businesses across the state who suffered damage from Storm Sandy are encouraged to register with FEMA before visiting the recovery center by either calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or through www.DisasterAssistance.gov<http://www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
