Senator Anwar Releases Statement Lauding More Than $30 Million in Assistance to Renters, Homeowners and Landlords

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor), the Senate Chair of the Housing Committee, issued the following statement in response to the announcement that the state will commit more than $33 million toward providing assistance to renters, homeowners and landlords impacted by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic:

"I am ecstatic to hear that Governor Lamont and his administration have dedicated more than $30 million to this vitally important cause," Sen. Anwar said. "With July 1 representing a truly significant deadline on the calendar for tens of thousands, the $10 million to rental assistance, $5 million for eviction prevention, $10 million in mortgage relief and more than $8 million toward rapid rehousing, additional rental assistance and reentry for those leaving incarceration dedicated today will go a long way in assisting the public. While these funds are significant, more can and must be done. The Housing Committee in fact held a hearing this morning to discuss how best to further assist the many who will still need help even after the current allotment is spent. I thank the Governor for his willingness to listen and look forward to continuing to work with him and his administration on this vital issue."
