Torrington seeks $9.73 million for street, building improvements

Economic Development Director Rista Malanaca has developed a robust list of projects and is hoping the city will receive more than $9 million for those endeavors from the Communities Challenge Grant program, overseen by the state Department of Economic and Community Development. The program is intended to potentially create approximately 3,000 new jobs; the DECD will allocate up to 50 percent of the funds to eligible and competitive projects in distressed municipalities such as Torrington. Torrington’s total grant request is $9.731 million. Torrington should know by early December whether it has received the Communities Challenge Grant.
