New Haven Housing, Healthcare Projects Get $21M+ State Boost

Dixwell Plaza’s mixed-use redevelopment, a new health center on Grand Avenue, and new affordable apartments on Shelton Avenue were some of the dozen New Haven projects to receive over $21 million in support from Hartford in an end-of-year windfall of state aid. That infusion of state cash for New Haven-based projects came Thursday from the State Bond Commission. “I am confident that these projects will have a positive and significant impact on New Haven, and I appreciate that Community Investment Fund and Governor Lamont and State Bond Commission recognize this as well,” Paolillo is quoted as saying. ​“I am happy to see New Haven with an opportunity to create greater health care access, leverage food entrepreneurship, respond and improve critical infrastructure that supports local economic development.” “The Fair Haven Community Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center that has been around for decades providing much-needed primary, behavioral health, and dental care to the residents of New Haven, primarily to those that reside in the Fair Haven area,” Candelaria is quoted as saying.
