In April of 2016, the Connecticut TOD Fund was expanded to cover all bus rapid transit and commuter rail corridors statewide, Including: CTfastrak, the Hartford Line, Shoreline East, and MetroNorth – New Haven Main Line and the New Canaan, Danbury, and Waterbury Branch lines.
The fund includes $13 million from LISC, $1 million from the State of Connecticut DECD, and $1 million from CHFA. The fund is managed by LISC. It provides predevelopment and acquisition loans to eligible projects to promote a mix of transit-oriented uses including new housing, retail, and commercial space.
