- IMPORTANT REMINDER -  

Municipalities are reminded that any announcement or notification of an award does not constitute a contract, and as such the municipality should not incur any STEAP grant funded expenditures until it has a fully executed contract/agreement with the agency assigned to administer its award. Expenditures incurred before the start date or after the end date of the fully executed contract/agreement will not be eligible for reimbursement unless such expenditures comport with the COVID-19-related special provision as outlined in the program guidelines.



PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

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.
