July 30, 2014, Hartford, CT –

In a press conference Monday morning, Governor Dannel P. Malloy alongside Connecticut Department of Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein and HDF President and CEO Joan Carty announced the official launch of Shore Up CT.

Shore Up CT is a state of Connecticut funded low-interest loan program which provides financing for property owners in coastal municipalities located in Flood Zones VE or AE to finance or refinance property elevations. Additional retrofitting for flood protection and wind proofing activities can also be financed.

“Shore Up CT is the first program of its kind across the nation dedicating non-federal resources to storms and disaster readiness,” President Carty said. As it stands, the eligible properties must be located in Zone VE or AE in the coastal municipalities Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, Westport, Fairfield, Bridgeport, Stratford, Milford, West Haven, New Haven, East Haven, Branford, Guilford, Madison, Clinton, Westbrook, Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, East Lyme, Waterford, New London, Groton, and Stonington.

According to Governor Malloy, “Preparing for and adapting to a changing environment is something we must address over the long term, and that’s exactly what we’re setting out to accomplish with this loan program.” Safety is a Shore Thing with Shore Up CT!
