Flood assistance survey now available online

Get your opinions on flood assistance heard by participating in a new online survey being conducted by the Conservation Commission.

The hope is to better assess the impact of Superstorm Sandy and specifically to identify long term recovery needs in the community. The survey is a result of work being done by the commission in assisting local residents to apply for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.

All residents that were impacted by the storm are encouraged to take the survey, especially those with unmet needs. Survey participation will also put residents on a list to receive future updates for flood assistance as new programs continue to be rolled out as part of long-term recovery process.

“We have residents who are not back in their home after 16 months or that have suffered significant financial losses as a result of the storm” Conservation Director Denise Savageau said in a press release. “The more information the town has on what residents need, the better we can communicate that to state and federal officials.”

Currently, the town is also working with the Connecticut Rises program, an umbrella program for all of the non-governmental organizations that work on disasters such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army.

Residents that were impacted by Sandy should also register with Connecticut Rises and can do that easily by dialing 2-1-1.

The flood assistance survey can be found on the town website at Greenwichct.org/sandy.
