The Livable City Initiative (LCI) is a city department and the primary agent for neighborhood development. It administers a variety of housing and neighborhood
revitalization activities, combining public improvements and rehabilitation incentives with private investment. Financial resources available include U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”) funds, HOME 20 Program funds, State of Connecticut Department of Housing funds, and local capital
project funds and funds available under the Lead-based Paint Hazard Reduction Program. In the last five years, the City has supported the renovation and new construction of 519 units of housing. Part of this success, 321 housing units (201 ownership/120 rentals) was attributed to a $7 million state investment, which wasleveraged seven times to $52,549,302 supporting 26 projects. In addition to new units of housing, LCI administers a downpayment and closing cost program and a homebuyer gap financing program, which has assisted 144 families over the past five years.
