To the Editor:
In The Stern Village Voice, newsletter, Sept. 1, we seniors living in the Trumbull Housing Authority SternVillage low-income housing facility, were told that we did not receive the $30 million in federal funding Mr. Herbst was relying on to overhaul Stern Village. This was no surprise. There was only $120 million available to create low-income housing for the whole state, and Herbst’s plan didn’t add a single new unit of housing to justify using one-quarter of that money just for Trumbull. His plan would also have raised the base rent, thereby excluding otherwise qualified prospects.
