The funding includes $8,898,000 in state bond funds to provide a grant-in-aid to the Westport Housing Authority to assist with redevelopment of the moderate rental project.
“I welcome the state’s continued support of affordable housing in Westport,” said Steinberg. “Well-designed affordable housing options, such as the project at Sasco Creek, are the best way to encourage the community diversity which we all value.”
