Project Management and Redevelopment Produces Economic Development 

Tuesday, June 21, 2016
We are often asked, “What exactly does the Department of Economic and Community Development do?” Hamden has always had a strong Economic and Community Development program that values the importance of business incentives, business retention and attraction and workforce development. The Department of Economic and Community Development’s overall goal is to improve the well being of the town by retaining jobs and growing the tax base.

But there is often more to the process of growing the economy. The hard work that gets done involves complicated real estate negotiations, development, and transactions. These projects are administered either by the Department of Economic and Community Development or by Hamden Economic Development Corporation. The redevelopment issues that typically come up include the remediation of brownfield sites, infrastructure investment, and neighborhood revitalization.

Program will Lower Energy Costs for CT Manufacturers 

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and Connecticut Green Bank have launched a new campaign that provides manufacturers with an innovative way to lower their energy costs. The "Energy on the Line" program will provide supplemental funds to manufacturers who complete a qualifying green energy project using the Green Bank's Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program. C-PACE provides commercial property owners with 100% upfront financing for green energy projects where the energy improvements deliver immediate positive cash flow to the building owner. The supplemental funding (up to $50,000) may be used for any project-related expenses at the discretion of the recipients, thereby reducing the amount of financing required. C-PACE offers predictable, trustworthy energy savings projections. Through Energy on the Line, manufacturers will benefit from support from the Green Bank and its program partners in developing C-PACE projects that are custom tailored to their business's needs.
