CT state officials meet to discuss efforts in helping Hurricane Maria victims

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A meeting to discuss Connecticut’s efforts to assist Puerto Rican families displaced by Hurricane Maria took place on Tuesday.

Governor Ned Lamont and community groups met in Hartford to discuss the efforts and response to the needs of Puerto Rican evacuees displaced by the devastating storm in 2017.

Members of the local Puerto Rican community also shared their experiences of how the state has helped them.

“We are at the end of those resources. Each and everyone of you need to lobby the state legislature so that the governor understands the importance of these dollars.”

State leaders say they want victims to know they are still working behind the scenes to ensure their needs are met.
