Aetna/Comet Diner Gets Funding

March 15, 2024

Renovation plans for the old Comet Diner will move forward with the approval of a $3.1 million state grant, giving the project enough funding to begin construction by early summer.

CIF funds can be a game changer and help restore vibrant and healthy communities. Here in Hartford we are seeing projects get the resources they need to spark additional development and growth — Projects like the Aetna/Comet Diner property, the Charter Oak Cultural Center, the Hartford Workforce Hub and the transformation of the blighted former Chester Bowles Park Housing into Willow Creek.
