Investments to create Connecticut jobs

Posted on January 31, 2016

Nearly $600 in investments have been approved to create more Connecticut jobs, among other initiatives.

The money will go towards moving the state forward, attracting jobs, improving quality of life, and funding important community projects in every region of the state.
The projects include major economic development initiatives such as moving Future Health Care from New York to Bridgeport and expanding AdChem in Manchester, as well as local projects in New Haven like the revitalization of the Q House and remediation of the former Connecticut Department of Transportation bus garage site.

The funding is part of a long-term revitalization strategy spanning every corner of Connecticut. Central Connecticut will receive about $69 million, Eastern Connecticut will see almost $38 million, Southern Connecticut will see $46.7 million, and Western Connecticut will see $64.3 million.  In addition, there are statewide investments totaling another $359 million.

“Today we launched a wide-variety of projects that reach many portions of our state – it’s all part of a long-term revitalization strategy.  The world is changing, and we need to adapt with it.  Central to that is making strategic investments to enhance our competitiveness in long-term,” Governor Malloy said.  “From Hartford to Eastern Connecticut to Fairfield County, we are making important investments to build a stronger Connecticut.  Today’s investments will help move us forward tomorrow.”
