PLAINVILLE - The State of Connecticut recently announced that it will award more $13 million to 13 municipalities in Connecticut to provide infrastructure upgrades that will modernize and rehabilitate housing for low and moderate-income individuals. Rep. William A. Petit Jr., announced that $1,500,000 will go to two developments in the Town of Plainville to be used for ADA improvements.

The Town of Plainville in conjunction with the Plainville Housing Authority will begin the modernization of the Centerview Village and Woodmoor Manor housing complexes for seniors by replacing existing bathtubs in all 80 units with “walk-in” showers and making ADA improvements to five kitchens.

“This award will be used for important improvements to ensure that two senior living centers in Plainville are brought to ADA compliance,” said Petit. “It’s a noteworthy project to help our seniors and I applaud these kinds of repairs.”

The funds were awarded to municipalities in Connecticut for infrastructure upgrades that will modernize and rehabilitate housing for low and moderate-income individuals through the Community Development Block Grant Small Cities program, which is administered by the DOH with funding from the Federal U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Projects considered for these funds must be in a municipality with fewer than 50,000 residents, and have a focus on improving neighborhoods, eliminating blight, and attracting economic development.
