Small CitiesComunity Development Block Grant Program
The Town of Clinton is considering submitting an Application for funding under the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program to the State Department of Economic and Community Development for funding to help income eligible Town residents rehabilitate and renovate their homes by providing a 'deferred' loan for eligible types of work.
'The Town has participated in this Program a few times in past years for other types of projects but because of the demographic of our community and the eligibility conditions for projects, there has not always been a good match between this funding and what the Town needs.', said First Selectman William Fritz.
'In these challenging economic times I see a clear opportunity to utilize this funding to help income eligible Town residents rehabilitate and renovate their homes to improve energy efficiency, address health and safety code issues including lead paint and generally upgrade the condition and economic life of their house by replacing roofs, upgrading siding, windows, etc.', he said.
Luxury improvements, decks, hot tubs, family rooms are not allowed but other rehab items such as window replacement, heating system upgrades/replacement, electrical improvements, interior repairs, exterior improvements, etc., determined to be needed and reasonable can be done.
For owner occupants, funding is provided as a non-interest/no payment loan re-payable on sale, re-mortgage, death, relocation, etc. 'One advantage of the Program is that funds that come back to the Town stay in Town for future use for our residents.' said First Selectman Fritz.
We need to prove to the State that there is a need and interest within our community for this type of Program, however, and ask that any residents interested call 860-699-9333. The State doesn't provide funding for this type of project unless we can show local interest in using the funds.If the Town moves forward, submission of the funding request to the State is due by May 29th and funding could come as early as the fall of 2009.
Income eligibility is based on family size and while it varies; a single person with an annual income of $43,050 or less per year or a family of four at or below $61,500 per year would be eligible.This is a unique opportunity to help our residents and taxpayers directly who meet the income criteria make their homes safer, more energy efficient and increase their quality of housing with no current cost burden. In addition, it gives us a degree of self-sufficiency to meet our future housing needs.If you have any questions or would like further information please do not hesitate to contact William Fritz, First Selectman, at 860-669-9333.

Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan
Clinton is asking for comments on a draft Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan for the town. The plan lays out priorities for steps that the town and its residents could take to prevent or reduce damages from natural hazards.
People and property in Clinton are periodically exposed to hurricanes, tropical storms, winter storms, and nor'easters, sometimes in combination. In the last two years alone, residents of Clinton have suffered downed trees, prolonged power outages, impassable roads, and lack of services from Tropical Storm Irene, the Halloween Nor'easter, Hurricane Sandy, and the February blizzard earlier this year. Good planning can help us avoid severe damages in the future from natural events that we cannot control.
In addition, FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, requires towns to have an approved plan in place to be eligible for planning and mitigation grants.
The Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments has helped the town draft a natural hazard mitigation plan, covering everything from drought to tornadoes. The plan is available for review at the town website, www.clintonct.org, the Town Clerk\s office, and the Henry Carter Hull Library. It will go to Town Meeting in the Spring of 2014. Until January 24, 2014, the town is seeking comments and suggestions though an on-line survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/Clinton_NHMP. If you cannot take it on line, either at home or at the library, please contact the Land Use Office, 860-669-6133, and we will provide you with a paper copy.
