Hamden will receive more than $2.3 million in federal money to help the town pay for the cost of debris removal after last year’s devastating storms and tornadoes.

The town spent more than $3 million on the cleanup from the storm in May 2018. A Presidential declaration was declared in August 2018.

The funding is a result of a partnership between FEMA, the State of Connecticut Emergency Management and the town. Hamden will receive the $2.3 million grant as the federal portion of the cost. The rest of the cleanup costs will come from other sources.
