Municipalities will be notified when the next STEAP grant period is open and accepting applications.  There is not a set schedule and is at the discretion of the Governor and OPM

Preserving the historical integrity and beauty of our small towns is vital to our economy and quality of life. The Small Town Economic Assistance Program (CGS Section 4-66g) funds economic development, community conservation and quality-of-life capital projects for localities that are ineligible to receive Urban Action (CGS Section 4-66c) bonds.  This program is managed by the Office of Policy and Management, and the grants are administered by various state agencies. Municipalities will be notified when the application process is open for the intake of new applications.  Only those applications submitted by eligible Connecticut municipalities which conform to application guidelines will be accepted. Entities other than eligible Connecticut municipalities are not entitled to apply for STEAP grants.
