HARTFORD – Today, the board for the Community Investment Fund (CIF) met to approve more than $6 million to support a Norwalk Housing Authority project and streetscape improvements in South Norwalk. Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, who is a member of the CIF board, advocated for the funding and voted to approve the two projects.

The Norwalk Housing Authority will receive $3,444,751 for a public housing redevelopment project located at 45 Meadow Street and the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency will receive $3 million for South Norwalk Streetscape Improvements Norwalk

“This round of state funding from the Community Investment Fund will result in moving forward more critical projects for Norwalk’s future,” Duff said. “I would like to thank the Governor and my fellow CIF board members for approving these projects.
