13 Connecticut communities to receive $13M in housing grants

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Thirteen communities across Connecticut are on tap to receive $13 million in federal grants aimed at helping smaller cities modernize and rehabilitate housing.

Gov. Ned Lamont and Connecticut Housing Commissioner Seila Mosquera-Bruno this week announced that the grants are designed to help improve housing for low and moderate-income individuals.

Eligible projects have to be in a municipality with fewer than 50,000 residents and have a focus on improving neighborhoods, eliminating blight, and attracting economic development.

One of the projects is Mystic River Homes in Groton. The $1.5 million grant will help pay for elevator replacements and a new fire system pump, hot water system upgrades and a new backup generator.

Other communities that received grants include: Chester, Derby, East Windsor, Enfield, Farmington, Guilford, Hebron, Madison, Plainville, Trumbull, Wallingford and Windham.
