Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) Commissioner Evonne M. Klein today announced that nearly $13 million is being awarded to 21 municipalities in Connecticut to provide important upgrades and improvements to the state’s affordable housing stock and infrastructure.
Awarded under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities program, which is administered by DOH with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the grants are awarded to small towns that have a population below 50,000 residents to advance projects that develop and preserve affordable housing, provide services to the most vulnerable residents in their communities, and also create and retain jobs.
“These projects will help so many local communities increase quality of life and make our state an even more attractive place to live, work and do business,” Governor Malloy said. “These are investments in our neighborhoods, in the people who live here, and in our economic future.”
