Kennedy Welcomes State Investments in Guilford and Madison Housing

State Senator Ted Kennedy, Jr. (D-Branford) today welcomed the state investment of more than $1 million in housing upgrades in Guilford and Madison.

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

“State investments like this allow older, retired people to remain in their communities longer. Other state investments allow younger people and families to experience home ownership through the creation of affordable housing,” Sen. Kennedy said. “These are both positive investments in the people of Guilford and Madison.”

Guilford will receive $400,000 to undertake the rehabilitation of approximately 10 low- and moderate-income family homes in the community, making them safer and more livable. Anticipated work includes roof replacements, furnace and heating system replacements, plumbing and electrical upgrades, ADA compliance modifications, septic system repairs, and energy efficiency improvements such as window and door replacements.

Madison will receive $800,000 for the Concord Meadows (Madison Interfaith Residential Community). The town, in conjunction with Madison Interfaith Residential Community, will initiate the first phase of upgrades to this senior housing community beginning with the replacement of deteriorated windows with new energy efficient windows. This phase will also upgrade bathroom tubs in various units to be ADA compliant roll-in showers.
