Seven state-funded public housing projects around the state will share in $10 million from an expanded state program that seeks to increase and revitalize affordable housing.
The projects in today’s announcement target rehabilitation and redevelopment of existing properties. The grants include:
- $3 million to the Middletown Housing Authority for 198 units of moderate rental housing for families in three developments: Santangelo Circle, Sunset Ridge and Rockwood Acres.
- $3 million to the Glastonbury Housing Authority for 140 units of elderly housing at 10-119 Knox Lane and 79 New London Tpke.
- $577,880 to the Friendship Service Center of New Britain for 22 units of transitional housing at 85 Arch St.
- $644,341 to the Wethersfield Housing Authority for 28 units of moderate rental housing for families at Highview Apartments, including properties on Highview Avenue, Holbrook Terrace, Oxford Street and Wolcott Hill Road.
- $1.4 million to Mark Twain Congregate for 82 units of congregate housing for the frail elderly at 110 South Road, Enfield.
- $1.1 million to Mt. Carmel Elderly for 40 units of elderly housing at 33 Woodruff St., Hamden.
- $269,825 to Mystic River Homes for 51 units of congregate housing for the elderly at the Mystic River Congregate facility at 205 Elm St. in Groton.
The funding is part of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s plan to spend $500 million rehabilitating and building new affordable housing units for individuals, families and the elderly.
“Nearly 60 percent of the state’s public housing supply is more than 30 years old — it is deteriorating, it isn’t safe for families, and in some cases, it is uninhabitable,” Malloy said.
The state’s current two-year budget includes $150 million and over the next nine years, there will be an additional $270 million spent on the program
“This support will restore leadership on this important issue and ensure we have safe, secure housing for Connecticut’s low-income families,” Malloy said.
