Dear Newtown Resident or Property Owner:
The Newtown Housing Rehabilitation Program is a revolving loan program that was created in 1993 to help our lower income residents with necessary home repairs.
Funds for this program were originally made available through the Federal Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program. The rehabilitation program is now funded by the loans that have been paid. Qualified applicants will receive funds, either a deferred loan or a low interest loan, to improve their homes.
The following documents are available for download and printing:
- Program Fact Sheet
- Extent of Assistance Available (Revised 1/20/2010)
- Eligible Improvement Activities
- Housing Rehabilitation Program Process
- Application Form
Please read the materials to determine whether you have a need for housing rehabilitation and whether you meet the income limits for this program. If so, fill out the application and return it with the necessary verification to the Social Services Department,Town Hall South, 3 Main Street. If you have any questions about your qualifications or the type of projects that may be funded, call Ann LoBosco in the Social Services Office at 203-270-4330.
A complete copy of the Housing Rehabilitation Guidelines and procedures is available for your review in the Social Services Office.
Repair of homes and failed septic systems is of great benefit to the entire town. We are delighted to be able to offer this program to the people of Newtown to assist in that process. Funds are limited, therefore, we encourage you to return your completed applications as soon as possible.
