About the Multifamily Rehabilitation Program:
The Multifamily CDBG-DR assistance programs will provide funding for necessary expenses related to disaster relief, long-term recovery and restoration of multifamily housing impacted as a result of Superstorm Sandy. This assistance will target eligible Low to Moderate Income (LMI) multifamily properties with unmet need, including public housing, HUD-assisted housing, McKinney-Vento funded shelters and housing for the homeless, which were damaged by Superstorm Sandy and depending upon particular program requirements, located either within or outside the 100 or 500 year floodplain in any eligible community located in the four designated counties with emphasis on properties located in Fairfield and New Haven counties.
For purposes of these guidelines, the State has allocated $26,000,000 toward Multifamily Assistance for properties affected by Hurricane Sandy. The State of Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) will offer Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) assistance through the three following multifamily housing programs:
Scattered Site Rehabilitation and Rebuilding Program (SSRR) (non-owner occupied)
Multifamily Rehabilitation Program (Outside the floodplain) (MFRO)
Multifamily Rehabilitation/Rebuilding & Mitigation Program (Inside the floodplain) (RRMI)
About the Scattered Site Program
The Scattered Site Rehabilitation and Rebuilding Program is designed to assist non-owner occupied properties consisting of 1-4 units.
In general, the State’s housing recovery programs are designed to meet the unmet housing needs of the communities most impacted by Superstorm Sandy in Fairfield and New Haven counties (i.e. the rehabilitation, reconstruction, and mitigation that insurance, FEMA and any other sources of funding does not cover). The Scattered Site Rehabilitation and Rebuilding program (SSRR) design is to assist people directly affected by Superstorm Sandy. This program, SSRR, will provide funding both to property owners that need only rehabilitation assistance and to those that need substantial rehabilitation or reconstruction assistance as well as mitigation.
