Sen. Moore Welcomes $800K State Grant Funds for Improvements to Trumbull’s Stern Village

TRUMBULL—Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) welcomed an $800,000 state Community Development Block Grant for improvements to Stern Village, a 222-unit senior rental housing development run by the Trumbull Housing Authority. Renovations will focus primarily on upgrading the windows to be more energy efficient.

“I’m so glad that Trumbull is one of 16 towns across the state to receive this shared grant,” Sen. Moore said. “These new energy-efficient windows at Stern Village will save money and our environment.”

Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) Commissioner Evonne M. Klein announced Thursday that $10.5 million is being awarded to 16 municipalities in Connecticut to provide infrastructure upgrades and improvements with the goal of combatting blight, improving neighborhoods, and increasing economic development.

Awarded through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities program, which is administered by DOH with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the grants are given to small towns that have a population below 50,000 residents and will advance projects that develop and preserve affordable housing, provide services to the most vulnerable residents in their communities, and also create and retain jobs.
