Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal are touting the inclusion of nearly $95 million for Connecticut in six bills posted by the Senate Appropriations Committee. These bills are not yet final, and funding will only be made available when these appropriations bills are passed by Congress and signed into law. 

Among the items that could be funded are two waste water treatment projects in Bethel using $2.24 million.  Some $1.72 million has been earmarked for low-income senior housing renovations at Butter Brook Apartments in New Milford.  The Wilton public safety communication system could use $983,000 for upgrades.

Several non-profit organizations would get funding, including $650,000 for Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board, $1.2 million for the United Way of Western CT to serve low-income families, $50,000 for the Danbury-based American Dream Foundation to serve meals to low-income seniors and $48,000 for Oddfellows Community Playhouse Youth Theater, serving at-risk youth in New Milford.
