New Loan Fund to Attract Transit Oriented Development

The Connecticut TOD Fund

The State of Connecticut is making an historic investment in transit that opens the door to economic vitality and opportunity. The State of Connecticut, the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) have created a new $15 million loan fund to encourage transit oriented development around station stops along CTfastrak and the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail corridor.The fund will offer predevelopment and acquisition financing to eligible projects and developers.

Transit oriented development (TOD) features a mix of uses, including new housing, retail,
commercial and office space near transit stops. TOD encourages the use of mass transit, reduces reliance on driving and fosters more compact, walkable communities. TOD can help communities expand access to jobs and education while jump-starting community revitalization.

Hartford Business Journal Sees Transit Spurring Development

The Hartford Business Journal identified several transit-oriented development projects near CTFastrak stations. These projects are great examples of how the Connecticut TOD Fund might be used.
