FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Fairfield residents affected by Hurricane Sandy can still receive funds for disaster recovery and rebuilding by submitting an online application to the town.
An intake center has also been temporarily set up at the Senior Center, located at 100 Mona Terrace, for residents seeking assistance with the application process. Its hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays.
It is closed on all federal holidays and will close at noon New Year's Eve.
You can also call the program’s Call Center at 1-866-272-1976 to make an appointment. The Call Center’s hours of operation are Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Mobile application intake units are available as well to assist those who are unable to come to the Intake Center. Intake counselors will meet a person at their home or another place of the applicant’s choosing. Priority for this service will be given to elderly or disabled individuals.
“The Town of Fairfield is here to assist our residents who are still dealing with the aftermath of Storm Sandy. I highly encourage applicants to make an appointment or visit the Intake Center as soon as possible since this program is based on a first-come, first-served basis,” First Selectman Mike Tetreau said in a statement.
The State’s application instructions, which outline eligibility requirements, as well as background information on the program, can be found here.
The program is geared toward residents with unmet needs from Superstorm Sandy. If eligible, Fairfield residents can receive assistance to rebuild and rehabilitate their homes damaged in the storm.
