Town Awarded $2.1 million for community well

In August 2023, the Town of Hebron was awarded $2.1 million from the State of CT to build a community well on property owned b y St. Peter’s Church, which will enable the construction of Church Street Commons. This critical infrastructure is essential to not only the housing development but to the town’s ability to develop a visually coherent Town Center and future growth. Hebron was one of eight cities and towns to receive funding under the third round of the Connecticut Communities Challenge Grant program.

Administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), the program was created in 2021 with the purpose of funding a wide range of revitalization projects that will spur the growth of new jobs. This third round of grants leverages approximately $105 million in non-state dollars.

“We created this grant program to help our towns and cities build more housing and improve our ability to attract businesses and grow jobs,” Governor Lamont said. “These grants are targeted toward projects that will make neighborhoods even more attractive for private investments and increase new opportunities for residents.”
