HUD Assistance Hurricane Sandy Aftermath|
HURRICANE SANDY AFTERMATH
As residents go back to their homes and evaluate the damages caused by Hurricane Sandy, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Hartford Field Office has asked to consider how they may be able to assist our community.
• If there is damage to supportive or assisted housing or shelter or housing units in general, HUD may be able to use their knowledge of state-wide inventories to assist in emergency relocation.
• HUD is also prepared to advise about the possibility of emergency waivers or exceptions, or about the use (federal funds) of regulatory provisions concerning interim assistance or urgent need.
• If there is wide-spread damage, HUD will need to assess the regional or state-wide extent of losses so that they can report to Washington on whether disaster assistance should be sought.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding damages to your property, and you think that HUD may be able to help you or connect you with the appropriate agency for further assistance, please call the Hartford Field Office at 860-240-4800. Ask to be connected to the following representatives: Kevin O’Neill, Caroline Carlson or Gary Reisine.
