FILE PHOTO: The federal government has extended the deadline for residents to apply to FEMA for assistance following Hurricane Sandy. Here, shoreline area homes are surrounded by water immediately after the big storm.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has extended the deadline to register for Storm Sandy disaster assistance from Dec. 31 to Jan. 28.

“With more than $20 million in federal aid approved already, there is clearly a need for many residents for assistance,” said Governor Dannel Malloy. “Extending this deadline will ensure that any resident or business affected by Storm Sandy has ample time to apply for assistance.”

To date more than $20 million in federal disaster assistance has been approved to help Connecticut residents with disaster-related expenses:

Residents and businesses in Milford that suffered damage from Storm Sandy are encouraged to register with FEMA before visiting the recovery center by either calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or through www.DisasterAssistance.gov. For those with speech or hearing disabilities, the TTY number is 1-800-462-7585.
