About the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG)

HUD provides Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) money to states, which may distribute the resources to non-entitlement communities like Mansfield (population less than 50,000). CDBG funds are administered through the State of Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) for non-entitlement communities. CDBG monies are disbursed to non-entitlement communities such as Mansfield after a competitive grant application process. Projects funds can be used for an assortment of projects that promote and aid in community development, housing, and economic development activities that provide a benefit principally to low and moderate income persons.

Application

At this time we do not have an active Housing Rehab Grant program, however, the Department is trying to update and verify our waiting list in anticipation of a future grant. Please fill out the application completely and email, mail or deliver to the Planning Office.

Juniper Hill Fire Sprinkler

In 2007, the Town submitted a Small Cities application to the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development for fire safety improvements to Juniper Hill Village assisted housing facility. Juniper Hill is a HUD assisted senior housing facility owned and operated by Mansfield Retirement Community, Inc., a non-profit housing corporation. In recent years, the “cottages” at Juniper Hills had been the site of two major fires; given the age and mobility concerns of the senior residents, the fire safety upgrade of these units was critical. The Town was awarded the grant, which provided funding to install a fire sprinkler system throughout the cottages as well as other related fire safety improvements. The grant award was $500,000. The project was completed in 2009.
