Increase Affordable Housing

Whether you are a young adult looking to rent your first apartment, a family eager to buy your first home, or a couple who have lived in Stamford for decades, no one should feel that our city is unaffordable. Unfortunately, in recent years, too many people are being priced out and squeezed out of neighborhoods they have lived in, in some cases, for decades. 

 

As a State Representative, I have been a fierce advocate for programs that reduce the property tax burden on seniors, help young people afford to live in CT, and support rental and mortgage relief for those negatively impacted by COVID-19. As your mayor, I will fight every day to make Stamford a more livable and affordable city for all residents by taking the following actions: 

  • Holding developers accountable to Stamford residents and ensuring that any development is smart, inclusive, and sustainable. 

  • Leveraging partnerships with the state and federal government to secure additional support for housing grants that are a first step towards increased affordability.  

  • Working with the state to expand rental relief for residents impacted by COVID-19.

  • Prioritizing property tax relief programs for seniors and low-income residents.

  • Advancing community land trust opportunities to expand more permanent affordable housing and cooperative housing opportunities.
