Sen. Slap Welcomes State Funding to Build 22 New Units at New Horizons Village in Farmington

FARMINGTON — State Senator Derek Slap (D-West Hartford) announced today that the State Bond Commission is expected to approve funding next week to build 22 new units of supportive housing at New Horizons Village in Farmington.

“Connecticut is home to a wide variety of people with a wide variety of housing needs. New Horizons Village fills one of those needs with compassion and style in Farmington, and now they’ll be able to serve even more people,” Sen. Slap said. “I’m glad the State Bond Commission saw the value in this project, connecting people with the housing they need in a beautiful and supportive setting.”

Opened in 1986, New Horizons Village is an apartment complex offering up to 101 adults with physical disabilities the opportunity for self-directed living. The Village combines barrier-free housing with non-medical care and transport support services.

The State of Connecticut will contribute $2.2 million – or 35.5% — toward the $6.2 million total cost of the construction. The federal government will contribute another $2.67 million, or 43 percent of the total cost.
