Governor Malloy announces twenty towns, cities and governmental groups in Connecticut which will receive nearly $11 million in grant funding to support transit-oriented development and responsible growth.
“The grants announced today will make Connecticut a better place to live, work, and compete in the 21st Century. These projects will improve pedestrian connections, increase multimodal transportation options, encourage infill development and discourage sprawl. And they complement the historic investments being made in public transit under the Let’s Go CT! initiative,” Office of Policy and Management Secretary Ben Barnes said. “By promoting transportation alternatives, the projects will decrease emissions and road congestion in high traffic areas. This is the type of critical funding that we must continue to invest in our towns and cities.”
