RE: Federal Aid Funding for January 11-12, 2011 Snowstorm for Nonprofit Organizations
Connecticut’s Department of Emergency Services and Homeland Security, under the leadership of Commissioner Boynton, has successfully applied to FEMA on behalf of Governor Malloy for disaster funding to help defray costs associated with the January 12, 2011 record-breaking snowstorm. Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, New Haven, New London, and Tolland Counties have been designated and approved (aid for Middlesex and Windham Counties is still pending). Aid is available to eligible nonprofit organizations.
A series of county-wide meetings with FEMA and DEMHS have been scheduled for the week of March 21. These meetings will give you an opportunity to learn about eligibility and the process for applying for funding. A schedule of these meetings is attached. If you experienced noninsured costs associated with the January 12 storm, I highly recommend that you send a representative from your agency to your designated meeting.
Attached, I have included some more information concerning eligibility. Even if it may look like you are not eligible, I still recommend that you attend the meeting and hear directly from FEMA and DEMHS.
Please note: Even if you were not a party to the initial application from Connecticut to FEMA, you may still be eligible for assistance.
Please note: Aid for individuals and businesses was not available from FEMA for this storm.
Please note: Eligible expenses will be covered at 75% of the documented costs.
