June 15, 2010

Federal grants and low-interest loans are now available for rural residents whose homes were damaged by floods in March in Connecticut.

Gov. M. Jodi Rell says eligible homeowners could receive up to $27,500 in assistance for repairs and improvements.

The loan and grant programs will help finance major repairs or renovations such as removing electrical and fire hazards, replacing roofing, installing or improving water and wastewater disposal systems and installing insulation and heating and cooling systems.

Loans of up to $20,000 carry a 1 percent interest rate.

The assistance is available for residents in communities with populations of 20,000 or fewer.
