Senator Moore Supports $1 Million Small Cities Grant to Improve Trumbull Housing

Today, State Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) supported the announced release of over $1 million in grant funding that will assist renovations of a 36-unit housing rental project in Trumbull. The Governor’s office announced the grant Thursday as part of $13 million released to modernize and rehabilitate housing in towns across the state.

Trumbull will receive $1,072,234 in grant funding for the renovation of the Henry Stern Center, a 36-unit congregate housing rental project. Those renovations will include energy-efficient heating and ventilation upgrades and new equipment to reduce energy consumption including an energy efficient boiler, new individual unit temperature controls, a fresh air ventilation system and heat pump systems to better provide heat and air conditioning to all building spaces. The project will also include bathroom accessibility improvements.

“I welcome this grant funding, which will directly benefit the Trumbull community,” said Sen. Moore. “These buildings are decades old, and they require significant upgrades; the grant funding will provide a better quality of life to everyone living there. I thank the Governor and his administration for their hard work in securing this funding.”

According to the Connecticut Post, the Stern housing complex dates back to 1970, and this funding is key to support residents of the 36 units, who have difficulties performing daily activities.
