Office of Governor Dannel P. Malloy
 

The Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) has awarded $30 million in funding for seventeen applications aimed at creating homeownership opportunities across the state. $20 million was allocated to seven “statutorily designated cities,” which are Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven, Stamford, Norwalk, New Britain, and New London. The remaining $10 million was available to other cities and towns in the state.

"Affordable housing strengthens communities, creating neighborhoods where families and individuals can find stability, gain employment, and build a brighter long-term future. Investing in quality housing and opportunities such as these can improve thousands of lives and help further Connecticut's progress,” said Governor Malloy.

Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein added, "The affordable homeownership funding round presents the unique opportunity to create affordable homeownership, not only in our cities, but also in our smaller municipalities.
