State Representative Bryan Hurlburt, who represents Tolland in the Connecticut General Assembly, along with Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that Tolland will receive a federal grant to help continue its Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program.
A total of $300,000 awarded from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Small Cities Community Development Block Grant program will provide assistance to low and moderate-income households.
The funding, which is administered through Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development, will be used to address needed septic system, roofing, plumbing and siding repairs as well as structural deficiencies, replacement windows and insulation.
Tolland residents can call 860-871-3648 or visit the town’s Human Services Department online at www.tolland.org/government for more information on the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program.
“Projects such as this are one of the best ways Connecticut can reinvest in its communities while helping the local economy,” Hurlburt said. “This is also a win for local taxpayers as every dollar that comes back from Washington and the state helps stabilize town property taxes.”
31 Connecticut towns have been awarded a total of $11 million through the program, which targets economic development, affordable housing, and other community revitalization projects.
