The state on Friday approved an $81 million package of grants and loans to expand businesses and create jobs — including $29 million for Fairfield and New Haven County companies.

"The investments we’re making will produce thousands of good-paying jobs for our residents for years to come," said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

"These investments are further proof of our commitment to companies right here at home, and to welcome new businesses to the great state of Connecticut," Malloy said.

The overall package is expected to retain 15,003 jobs and create 3,876 jobs as companies expand, relocate or stay in the state, officials said.
