DOH Predevelopment Loan Program
The Department of Housing (DOH) is pleased to announce the new streamlined application process for its predevelopment loan program which is directed to housing developers seeking assistance with predevelopment costs incurred in connection with the construction, rehabilitation, or renovation of housing for low-and moderate-income persons and families. Predevelopment costs are expenses that are not administrative and are necessary before the construction stage of a project begins. Proposed projects to be supported with these predevelopment funds must be eligible for financial assistance from DOH.
Nursing Facility Diversification
This program provides financial assistance to the owners of nursing facilities that are licensed by the State of Connecticut, Department of Public Health so that they can change or diversify their business model in a way that supports individuals on Medicaid who need Long Term Supports and Services (LTSS) living in the community.
An owner's proposed diversification plan must align with the State’s Strategic Rebalancing Plan: A Plan to Rebalance Long Term Services and Supports 2013-2015, and assure informed choice to residents living in their facility and contribute to reducing the total number of nursing facility beds statewide. Owners are expected to develop relationships and partner with stakeholders in the community including but not limited to town governance, town residents, nonprofit entities, and existing home and community-based services (HCBS) providers.
