HARTFORD, CT - Governor Ned Lamont and Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) Commissioner Seila Mosquera-Bruno last week announced that $13 million is being awarded to 13 municipalities in Connecticut to provide infrastructure upgrades that will modernize and rehabilitate housing for low and moderate-income individuals.

Awarded through 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, eligible projects must be in a municipality with fewer than 50,000 resident and have a focus on improving neighborhoods, eliminating blight, and attracting economic development.

“These grants go a long way toward improving neighborhoods so that we can make our communities more attractive and encourage continued growth for the benefit of all of our residents,” Governor Lamont said.

“These awards will help to improve the lives of Connecticut residents,” Commissioner Mosquera-Bruno said. “Whether it’s helping a family to complete essential renovations on their homes such as repairing a leaking roof, making a senior living facility ADA compliant, or improving the habitability of a domestic violence shelter – CDBG Small Cities funding is an important program. This federal funding is essential to low and moderate income residents and without these dollars, we would likely be unable to assist as many of our low and moderate income residents as they make these kinds of repairs.”

The recipients of this round of CDBG grants are as follows:

· Chester – Cherry Hill Apartments ($800,000): The project is for energy and safety related improvements for the LMI residents of the 23 units. The activities will include replacement of exterior doors and windows, new heat pumps and siding, ADA improvements, minor painting, and repaving of parking and sidewalk areas.

· Derby – CiCia Manor ($1,000,000): The proposed scope of work at Cicia Manor is to create three new ADA-complaint residential units and make ADA upgrades to the Community Building. The kitchen area will be renovated, the existing bathrooms will be redesigned to address access, floor space, turning radius, approach zones and clearances. The electric baseboard heating system will be supplemented with a heat pump significantly reducing electrical usage, and the generator installation will allow the Community Building to be used as a place of refuge in the event of power outages.

· East Windsor – Park Hill Renovations ($650,000): This project will involve accessibility upgrades inclusive of bathrooms through tub-to-shower conversions.

· Enfield – Green Valley Village and Laurel Park ($175,000): The project will involve electrical upgrades, which will consist of replacing 83 main breaker panels and 83 meter boxes.

· Farmington – New Horizons Village General Renovations ($900,000): This is a unique housing community for low-to-moderate income persons with disabilities. This project aims to improve functionality and accessibility and safety for the residents by upgrading to energy efficient windows, replacing non-code compliant railings and guards, installation of new thermal sheathing under new vinyl siding, replacing building soffits, and increasing and upgrading attic insulation.

· Groton – Mystic River Homes ($1,500,000): Capital improvements will be completed on Mystic River Homes. The work will include ADA access improvements, elevator replacement and upgrades, new fire system pump, hot water system upgrades, new backup generator, interior upgrades of flooring, common area upgrades, unit upgrades, and new roadways and parking areas.

· Guilford – Shelter Diversion Program ($350,000): Two full-time and two part-time diversion specialists and one youth diversion specialist will be hired to run a shelter diversion program in the Greater New Haven Coordinated Access Network.

· Hebron – Stone Craft Manor Public Housing Modernization ($700,000): The improvements will include replacement of severely aged and degraded existing doors with high efficiency Therma Tru doors, site improvements, new water heaters, kitchen and bathroom upgrades, installation of security cameras on each of the buildings, and installation of a small solar panel in the tool shed used by the residents.

· Madison – Concord Meadows (Madison Interfaith Residential Community) ($1,479,021.09): The town, in conjunction with Madison Interfaith Residential Community, will begin the second phase of upgrades to this senior housing community with the installation of new heat pump systems for improved and efficient heating and air conditioning in each unit and new energy star-rated windows to increase energy efficiency and envelope improvements for the newer phase of the development.

· Trumbull – Henry Stern Center ($1,072,234): The town will use the funding to renovate Henry Stern Center, a 36-unit congregate housing rental project. Renovations will include heating and ventilation improvements to increase energy efficiency, a new highly energy efficient boiler, new individual unit temperature controls, new hallway fresh air ventilation system, new living units high energy efficient heat pump systems to provide heating and air conditioning to all building spaces, and bathroom accessibility improvements.
