HUD Awards MD $19M In Superstorm Sandy Aid

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. (AP) - The Department of Housing and Urban Development is awarding $19 million in aid to Maryland communities hit by Superstorm Sandy.
    
Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will announce the funding through the Community Development Block Grant program on Monday morning in Easton.
    
The funds are meant to be flexible aid that can be used to address severely damaged housing and infrastructure and help with economic development in areas impacted by the storm, which struck a year ago. The state must develop and submit an action plan to HUD describing the strategy and planned uses for the funds.
    
With this aid, Mikulski's office says Maryland will have received more than $73.5 million in federal funds related to the storm.
