HARTFORD, Connecticut — Connecticut is receiving the federal disaster declaration needed to receive federal aid to help cover costs incurred from the January blizzard.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Wednesday that financial assistance will be provided to state agencies and municipalities in New London, Windham and Tolland counties. Also, the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes will be eligible for funding to help cover costs incurred from the storm. The reimbursement rate is 75 percent.

The major winter storm dropped a foot or more of snow over much of Connecticut on Jan. 26 and 27. The eastern part of the state was hit the hardest.

All counties and the two tribes are also eligible to apply for assistance under the Federal Emergency Management Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
