State Bond Commission Approves Millions to Support Waterbury Projects

April 1, 2022

The State Bond Commission on Thursday approved $2.36 million in bond funds for two projects in Waterbury.

This funding is tremendous news for Waterbury residents and families. I appreciate Governor Lamont for lending his support to this funding, and the Waterbury delegation's unwavering advocacy for our city.

The first project is $870,000 to fund the installation of an elevator adhering to ADA standards at Brass City Charter School.

Founded in 2013 by a group of Waterbury educators and residents, Brass City Charter School educates children academically, socially and emotionally through a challenging, but nurturing pre-K to grade 8 curriculum.

Nearly $1.5 million was awarded to Neighborhood Housing Services of Waterbury (NHSW) for the Crownbrook Homeownership Initiative Redevelopment Project.

NHSW is a nonprofit, HUD certified organization founded in 1980 with the purpose of revitalizing neighborhoods and creating homeownership opportunities throughout Waterbury. NHSW now serves low-to-moderate income individuals and families in Waterbury and 20-plus other communities in western Connecticut.
