Emergency services to be posted on state website

Connecticut has a new website – CTrecovers.ct.gov – that is designed to serve as a resource for residents, businesses and towns for information about services, such as state and federal grants, available in the aftermath of natural disasters and other emergencies.

The press office of Gov. Dannel Malloy made the announcement about the new site in a recent email to The Bulletin.

“In the past couple of years, we’ve been in the unfortunate path of a number of storms and we’ve seen the devastation Mother Nature can cause. We’ve been grateful to have recovery resources available among federal, state and local officials, and this new website will help ensure that all residents know the options that are out there,” Gov. Malloy said.

“I’ve asked all of the involved state agencies to collaborate on this website so that this information can be placed in one convenient location and can be found easily whenever it is needed.”

The website currently has information on resources available to rebuild from Storm Sandy. The site will become a permanent fixture on the state’s official website and will be updated with new information as necessary, the governor’s office said. Among the grants the state has received to date for Storm Sandy relief are $72 million to help residents and businesses recover, which Gov. Malloy announced earlier this month.
