Housing Authority Small Improvement Program
Funding is available to State-Sponsored Housing Portfolio developments owned by Housing Authorities from the following:
- Capital Improvement Program Fund - Applicants can request up to $25,000 per property from the fund and are required to demonstrate 100% matching funds from public, private and/or philanthropic sources or in-kind professional services. (See below for appropriate outline and forms.)
- Resident Program Fund - Applicants can request a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000 per property from the funds for up to one year of funding of a program. No matching funds are required. (See below for appropriate outline and forms.)
- Basic Needs Pantry - If your Housing Authority applied and were awarded Basic Needs Pantry (BNP) dollars in 2020, you are eligible to apply for up to $2,000. If your HA has not previously applied for BNP dollars, you are eligible for $30 per SSHP unit (maximum $5,000) plus an additional $2,000 (example: 40 SSHP units x $30 = $1,200 + $2,000 = $3,200). No matching funds are required; however, community partnerships are encouraged. (See below for appropriate outline and forms.) In order to expedite your request, the Application Packages must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org; however, the two original signed Agreements (with the executed and notarized attachments) must be mailed to:
Attn: Michele LaPila
999 West Street
Rocky Hill, CT 06067-3011
Electronic submission of your Basic Needs Pantry Application Package will enable us to review it prior to the receipt of the signed/notarized documents and permit us to process your request expeditiously.
