The New Haven Legislative Delegation and Governor Dannel P. Malloy, joined by state Department of Housing (DOH) Commissioner Evonne M. Klein, has announced nearly $32 million in grants for improvements to multifamily housing, infrastructure and public facilities and for planning purposes in cities and towns affected by Superstorm Sandy.
The City of New Haven will receive $3.3 million in federal Grant funds to be used for important erosion control projects. These grants will allow the city to take a step forward and prepared for New England’s new weather patterns.
“These grants allow us to repair vulnerable coastal areas while also being smarter about how we use coastal lands. Planning analysis in the Mill River area will provide us with an opportunity to encourage economic development, grow jobs, and protect, reuse, and redevelop vital land within our city,” said State Representative Roland J. Lemar (D – New Haven, East Haven).
