$2.5 Million Awarded to Develop Affordable Homeownership in Hartford’s South End

Trinity is Proud to Partner With SINA in Reinvigorating the Surrounding Community
Hartford, Conn., July 20, 2015 – Governor Dan Malloy announced earlier this month that Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance (SINA) — of which Trinity is a partner institution — is one of a small number of organizations and municipal agencies awarded grants to develop homeownership housing in their communities. SINA was awarded $2.5 million by the Connecticut Department of Housing in a highly competitive selection process. The funds will be used to develop homeownership opportunities in Hartford’s South End.

Joanne Berger-Sweeney, president of Trinity College, applauded the selection of SINA for the grant award, stating, “Trinity has developed important partnerships with community groups throughout the city. Our work with SINA is particularly focused on reinvigorating the community in our own backyard, and we are proud to be a partner in SINA’s Homeownership Incentive Program. These new funds will provide more homeownership opportunities in our neighborhood and further strengthen the South End of Hartford.”
