Last year, I voted for the future of our communities by establishing the $875 million Community Investment Fund (CIF). This is a transformational opportunity to invest in underserved communities in Connecticut through economic development and small business, education, and infrastructure projects.
Reminder - State Representative Maryam Khan and I are holding an in-person discussion about resources available for senior citizens. We will be joined by Anna Doroghazi from CT AARP and Kathleen Holt from the Center for Medicare Advocacy.
