Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Tuesday that more than $250 million in federal assistance has been approved to help people and businesses in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
The decision comes after President Barack Obama approved Malloy's request for a disaster declaration as a result of the massive storm.
"I want to thank President Obama and FEMA for their continued support," Malloy said in a statement. "As the recovery process continues, these funds have clearly helped Connecticut residents and businesses in the wake of Super Storm Sandy."
