Federal Coordinating Officer Albie Lewis: “Connecticut residents who registered for assistance from FEMA after Hurricane Sandy are now receiving letters explaining the status of their applications. Don’t be discouraged if you get a letter saying you don’t qualify for help. Read the letter carefully. Call the FEMA Helpline or visit a Disaster Recovery Center and ask questions. FEMA may only need some additional information such as insurance information or simply a signature. You can reach the Helpline at 1-800-621-FEMA or 1-800-621-3362. For TTY, call 1-800-462-7585. Thank you."
