Lamont Announces $49M in State Funding To Build More Units of Affordable Housing In Connecticut

Governor Ned Lamont today announced that more than $49 million in state funding that will support the development of hundreds of units of affordable housing in towns throughout Connecticut is anticipated to be approved when the State Bond Commission meets later this week.

The governor, who serves as chair of the commission, said the funding supplements his administration’s ongoing efforts to expand access to mixed-income housing options in a wide range of Connecticut communities while also building on initiatives to prevent and end homelessness.

“Helping all Connecticut residents afford high-quality housing in the community of their choice supports families, kickstarts the economy, and makes neighborhoods vibrant places to live and work,” Governor Lamont said. “As more and more families decide to build their future in Connecticut, it’s vital we invest in housing. An investment in housing is an investment in family stability, children’s success, and the economic health of our entire state.”

The funding will be used to support the following projects:

  • Branford: Parkside Phase 1, 67 Units, $3,795,000
