On or about March 21, 2016 the Town of Windsor anticipates submitting a request to the Connecticut Department of Housing for the release of CDBG Small Cities funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (PL 93-383), as amended, to undertake a Town-wide Housing Rehabilitation Program.


The activity proposed is categorically excluded under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this project is on file at the Town of Windsor, Office of Community Development, 275 Broad Street, Windsor, CT, and may be examined or copied weekdays from 8:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M.



Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Office of Community Development, (860) 285-1985. All comments received by March 18, 2016 will be considered by the Town of Windsor prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds.



The Town of Windsor certifies to the State of Connecticut that Peter P. Souza, Certifying Officer in his capacity as Town Manager consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. State of Connecticut approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Town of Windsor to use Program funds.



The State of Connecticut will accept objections to its release of funds and the Town of Windsor's certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Town of Windsor; (b) the Town of Windsor has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the State of Connecticut; or (d)another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.


Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the State of Connecticut's Department of Housing, 505 Hudson Street, Hartford, CT 06106. Potential objectors should contact State of Connecticut to verify the actual last day of the objection period.






Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) Tax Credit Program

The Town of Windsor will be participating in the State of Connecticut’s 2014 Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) Tax Credit Program.  The NAA Program, administered through the state’s Department of Revenue Services, benefits eligible non-profit organizations and municipal entities, by providing a financial incentive to corporate donors.  Donors approved for participation receive a 60% tax credit against their corporate state tax liability, and up to a 100% tax credit for certain energy conservation projects as well as employment and training projects, subject to certain restrictions.  Organizations wishing to take advantage of this program are responsible for soliciting their own contributions from eligible corporations.  The town’s role in the program is limited to 1) marketing the program to eligible entities, 2) holding a public hearing to solicit public comment on all applications received, 3) having the governing body of the town act upon all applications, and 4) submitting all approved applications to the Department of Revenue Services for consideration.

If, after reading the material, you determine that your organization would like to participate in the program please complete an application (form NAA-01) and submit it to the Office of Community Development, 275 Broad Street, Windsor, CT  06095.  You may also download the form from the drs website at:
