Governor Announces $10 Million for Public Housing

 

On June 27, 2012, Governor Dannel Malloy announced that the state is investing $10 million in seven state-funded public housing developments with  561 public housing units. This investment is part of the Governor’s overall 10-year $420 million commitment to expand and revitalize affordable housing across the state.

The importance of affordable housing is something the Governor understands. “My commitment to public housing is clear—we’ve invested $150 million in this biennial budget, and over nine years we will invest an additional $270 million. This support will restore leadership on this important issue and ensure we have safe, secure housing for Connecticut’s low-income families,” Governor Malloy said.

This first phase of funding has been allocated through a competitive process to projects that will rehabilitate or redevelop existing properties and possess long-term operating plans to revive previously vacant units. The funding has been granted to the following projects:

  • Middletown Housing Authority - $3,000,000 for 198 units of moderate rental housing for families.
  • Glastonbury Housing Authority - $3,000,000 for 140 units of elderly housing.
  • Friendship Service Center of New Britain - $577,880 for 82 units of congregate housing for the frail elderly.
  • Wethersfield housing Authority - $644,341 for 28 units of moderate rental housing for families.
  • Mark Twain Congregate- $1,444,115 for 82 units of congregate housing for the frail elderly in Enfield.
  • Mt. Carmel Elderly - $1,063,839 for 40 units of elderly housing in Hamden.
