Wooden Window Repair or Replacement Program
The Wooden Window Repair or Replacement Program (“Window Program”) provides grants to owners of 2-to-6 unit apartment buildings constructed on or before 1950 located in Waterbury and New Britain to repair or replace wooden windows in rental units. The program is administered by the Connecticut Housing Investment Fund, Inc. (CHIF) with funding from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).
Apartment owners who own buildings constructed on or before 1950, and who provide matching funds equal to or greater than the grant amount are eligible to apply for a grant. Properties must be located in either Waterbury or New Britain.
Eligible owners receive a grant of up to $100 to repair or replace apartment windows. Owners must provide documentation that they are providing funds equal to or greater than the award amount. These additional funds may be provided through a grant from another program, private funds or another loan source.
