Temporary work available for Hurricane Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:

People who lost their jobs during the storm can apply for work in the recovery effort.

Gov. Dannel Malloy announced today that a federal grant of nearly $2 million will help pay for temporary cleanup jobs.

"Applicants must be unemployed as a result of Storm Sandy, or they must have been unemployed prior to the storm and no longer receiving unemployment benefits or other income supports," a statement by the Connecticut Department of Labor said.

The grant allows for about 120 positions for up to 20 weeks.
